Taken 10th June 2015 at Monument Valley, Utah. This stunning formation is located in a region of the Colorado Plateau. These impressive sandstone formations, geological monuments, are what gave Monument Valley its name. They were formed through centuries of erosion and uplift. Volcanic activity is also said to have contributed in some their formation. The Red Sandstone from which they are formed from dates back to the Permian period of around 160 million years ago. Today Monument Valley is more than just a major natural tourist attraction it is home to the Navajo People and is protected as a Navajo Tribal Park.
