Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park in Arizona in on the border of Utah. Off Route 160 in Arizona to 163 in Kayenta, AZ. Day drive from Scottsdale or Phoenix Arizona with overnight lodging suggested.
From there, a drive to Valley De Chelly and then the Petrified Forest - Painted desert is quite doable. We visited all 4 in 3 days from Scottsdale, staying a two Navajo hotels. A great experience.
