Hovenweep National Monument

Hovenweep National Monument was designated in 1923 to protect a desolate cluster of six ancient villages found spanning a twenty-mile area across the southeastern Utah/Colorado border.


Aneth, or 'Just like the devil!' The Navajo people used that phrase to describe the business practices of the community's first white trader. The name stuck.


The village of Bluff sits on the banks of the San Juan River, nestled within the sandstone bluffs that give the community its name.


Mexican Hat

Named for the inverted stone sombrero near the town, Mexican Hat boasts a colorful history. 



Monument Valley

Located on the southern border of Utah at an elevation of 5200 feet, Monument Valley and Oljato are surrounded by unique sandstone formations. 


Navajo Mountain

Sheltered at the base of Navajo Mountain, the community is the trailhead for two trails to Rainbow Bridge National Monument.
