Magical Monument Valley

When I visited the western part of the USA one of the things that impressed me the most was Monument Valley.
The home of the famous 'Inselbergen', the Geological name coming from the german language meaning something like ' Mountain Islands'
During my visit I made some pictures which I put together in this album! Enjoy!

I guess the Spanish "mesa" (meaning table) are used in English for these forms. I saw them as well :)

Yes that is right. The term 'Inselberg' is used by the dutch and germans and probably some other countries too.
And I think everyone who gets the chance should go see them!!

I was lucky enough to see them personally, though only through the roadside fence... but I understand the reasons and accept them.
