From Page you continue further east and enjoy a ride through the Navajo Indian Reservation. Take Hwy 98 all the way south until you hit US 160, make a left turn and head over to Kayenta, an old coal and uranium mining town. En route make sure to stop at Navajo National Monument, located in the northwest quarter of the reservation, to see two of Arizona’s biggest and most beautifully sited cliff dwellings. As you continue on Hwy 163 you will come to the classic Wild West landscape of stark sandstone buttes and forbidden pinnacles of rock, poking from an endless expanse of drifting red sands – you arrive at Monument Valley, which straddles the Arizona/Utah stateline. Here, you find yourself in a perfectly distilled scenery, the location for many famous Western movies. Continue your ride on Hwy 163 up to Bluff, where you pick up Hwy 191, your road to Blanding, which is your stop for tonight. Originally a trading center for the surrounding stock ranches, Blanding was settled in 1905 as a result of an irrigation project that still waters abundant crops of hay and grain. Several trading posts in Blanding deal in American Indian arts and crafts.
