Until yesterday, it has been my experience that any place that uses the word “view” in its name is usually stretching the truth a bit. I can no longer say that. The View Hotel in Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park lives up to its name…and then some. The rooms here all face some of the most spectacular and iconic views in this park, made familiar to us without even visiting in person because so many movies have been filmed here over the years. This view, taken as the sun was sinking behind us, is just off the parking lot of the hotel. The views from our third floor rooms are every bit as spectacular. This image shows West and East Mitten, the two buttes in the middle, so named because they look like mittens.
