The West and East Mitten Buttes in Monument Valley, North East of Arizona on the Colorado Plateau, also known as "The Mittens"(Malay: sarung tangan). West Mitten Butte summit is 1882m high, while East Mitten Butte summit is 1898m high. A butte(pronounced "bee-yoot") is a steep, vertical sides, flat top hill, in this case of The Mittens, they are of 3 rock layers; top layer is coarse-grained conglomerate, middle layer is sandstone, and bottom layer is Organ Rock Shale of cutler formation. The route up to the summit of these buttes are via rock climbing, with a special guide of Navajo Nation(Native American tribe) and permit. This spot where I was standing 0.97 km from the border of Arizona and Utah, several KM from the entrance of this valley. Monument Valley is not under US national park service, because this land is in the Navajo reserves. The entrance fee is $20/car, but the experience of seeing The Mittens and hundreds other rock formation in this valley is priceless. Put this in your "USA Road Trip" bucketlist. It deserves a spot in there.
