Monument Valley, on the border of Arizona and Utah, is on the Colorado Plateau and has some amazing sandstone mesas and buttes (pronounced "beauts" not "butts" as I quickly found out). Mostly located within the Navajo Nation Reservation, the area has been made famous from the many films about the American West. The challenge for the photographer is to capture a unique image, but with both sunrise and sunset creating changing light that changes by the minute, it is an inspiring location.
