John Ford Point is one of my favorite Monument Valley spots. It’s a great place to be at sunrise and sunset. Maps show which roads and trails are open to the public, which can be explored when accompanied by an authorized Navajo guide. Hire a Navajo guide and use their services to photograph the formation called Yei Bi Chei at sunrise. Learn the best time to photograph the Teardrop Window and how to get a Navajo guide to photograph Canyon de Chelly and Canyon del Muerto.
