The Mittens
West and East Mitten Buttes (also known collectively as The Mittens) are two distinctive geological features found within the Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park in northeast Navajo County, Arizona. When viewed from the south, the buttes appear to be two gigantic mittens with their thumbs facing inwards. The two buttes are about 0.6 miles (0.97 km) from the Arizona–Utah state line and West Mitten Butte is 1.1 miles (1.8 km) northeast of the park headquarters. The summit of West Mitten Butte is 6,176 feet (1,882 m) and East Mitten Butte is 6,226 feet (1,898 m) in elevation.

The Mittens form a triangle with Merrick Butte about 2/3 of a mile to the south and, with Sentinel Mesa. The buttes are made of three principal rock layers. The lowest layer is Organ Rock Shale, the middle is de Chelly Sandstone, and the top layer is the Moenkopi Formation capped by Shinarump Conglomerate.

Merrick Butte
Merrick Butte is a butte located in Monument Valley in extreme northeast Navajo County, Arizona. It is located 1.4 miles (2.3 km) east of the monument headquarters and 1.25 miles (2.01 km) south of the Arizona–Utah state line. It is part of the Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park and is similar to its neighbors West and East Mitten Buttes just to the north.

UTAH : Goosenecks bend 02 - Goosenecks State Park

The Gooseneck of the San Juan River, UT-316, Mexican Hat, Utah

Goosenecks State Park

Goosenecks State Park is a state park in the U.S. state of Utah, overlooking a deep meander of the San Juan River. The park is located near the southern border of the state a short distance from Mexican Hat, Utah. Millions of years ago, the Monument Upwarp forced the river to carve incised meanders over 1,000 feet (300 m) deep as the surrounding landscape slowly rose in elevation. Eroded by water, wind, frost, and gravity, this is a classic location for observing incised meanders.

Goosenecks State Park is largely undeveloped. Primitive campsites with picnic tables are scattered back from the edge of the cliff, and vault toilets are available. Campers are advised to bring their own water, food, and other necessary gear.

There are no developed hiking trails in the park, but the Honaker Trail, a few miles to the northwest, provides access to the San Juan River.
