Monument Valley High: Utah
This field, located close to the Arizona border in the heart of the Navajo Reservation, provides a world-famous view of desert landscape. Watching from the stands as the sun begins to set, one can see ancient red-rock formations go from red to orange to purple to maroon at Monument Valley (Utah)
The breathtaking beauty of this area has been recorded over and over again in countless movies: Easy Rider, Forrest Gump, Cars, Mission: Impossible II and many more.
The field forms one of the few patches of green in the area and is situated in a small bowl. The sky seems to stretch forever on the northern horizon.
Fry bread and beans are sold at the concession stand, a student sings the National Anthem in Navajo and fans are known to build a campfire nearby as the night air cools. Sometimes the PA announcer has to remind fans to keep their truck lights off as they park around the field.
And, once in awhile, several cows will wander across the field, briefly stopping play.
