Monument Valley

Monument Valley (Navajo: Tsé Biiʼ Ndzisgaii, pronounced [tsʰépìːʔntsɪ̀skɑ̀ìː], meaning valley of the rocks) is a region of the Colorado Plateau characterized by a cluster of vast sandstone buttes, the largest reaching 1,000 ft (300 m) above the valley floor. It is located on the Arizona–Utah border (around 36°59′N 110°6′WCoordinates: 36°59′N 110°6′W), near the Four Corners area. The valley lies within the range of the Navajo Nation Reservation and is accessible from U.S. Highway 163.

Monument Valley has been featured in many forms of media since the 1930s. Director John Ford used the location for a number of his best-known films and thus, in the words of critic Keith Phipps, "its five square miles [13 square kilometers] have defined what decades of moviegoers think of when they imagine the American West."


モニュメント・バレー(Monument Valley)は、アメリカ合衆国西南部のユタ州南部からアリゾナ州北部にかけて広がる地域一帯の名称である。メサといわれるテーブル形の台地や、さらに浸食が進んだ岩山ビュートが点在し、あたかも記念碑(モニュメント)が並んでいるような景観を示していることからこの名がついた。
