Located in the western United States, “Monument Valley” is known for it’s impressive sandstone buttes that rise out of the earth in random and majestic ways.  As with most natural formations, such as Mount Everest, they look excellent in Google Earth.

Not only do the buttes look amazing in Google Earth, but the Street View imagery of some of them is quite impressive as well.  Noel Ballantyne at Google Sightseeing recently took a look at the area and shared his findings in a blog post on their site.

The area has been used for many movies and TV shows over the years, and Noel does a nice job of helping us explore it.  Grab his KML file to fly out there, and then check out the full post for more details.
