|You forgot about the car that they put on top of the Totem Pole for a commercial.|

|If you're heading North through Monument Valley (from Flagstaff to Moab), there is a huge volcanic plug just off the road to the right (east), before reaching Monument Valley proper. Does anyone know what this is/if it's been climbed? Some of the rock looks very reminiscent of the high quality stuff at Smith...|

|Many people who travel to Four Corners Monument are inquisitive about the lifestyle and cultures of these Native Americans. You could tour the visitor center and learn more about them. If you want a more hands-on experience, you could visit Monument Valley, which is close to the monument. Pay three dollars and you get admission to the only point where the boundaries of four US states (Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico and Utah) hit each other. If you are interested in geographical points like that and like taking the famous "standing-in-four-states-in-one-moment" shots, then this place is a must-go I have to admit.|

All areas on the Navajo Nation are closed to non-Navajos unless you have a valid camping, hiking or backcountry permit issued by the Navajo Parks and Recreation Department or other duly delegated tribal authority. Failure to have a permit is considered Trespassing on a Federal Indian Reservation.
NO ROCK CLIMBING on Navajo Land. Please abide by the humble religious requests of the Navajo people and do not climb the Monuments. Navajo law will be strictly enforced on this issue, Parks Department Manager.
It's illegal. Go for a hike, enjoy the area, and leave the climbing gear at home.
