Grand Falls; Navajo Nation, Arizona
Where to fly: Albuquerque International Sunport
The Grand Falls in Arizona is situated on a picturesque portion of the Navajo Nation in the Painted Desert. Since you’re on Navajo land, a hiking permit is required to enter the road that leads to the falls, and once you’re to the falls, it’s only a short half-mile hike to its base.
Pro tip: As is suggested in its name, The View Hotel boasts some of the best, unobstructed views of Monument Valley in all of the Navajo Nation.
