Today’s Image of the Day comes from the NASA Earth Observatory and features a look at Monument Valley, located along the border of Utah and Arizona.

Monument Valley spans about 92,000 acres and is often thought of as the ultimate picture of the American southwest.

This image, captured by the Operational Land Imager (OLI) on board the Landsat 8 satellite, includes Mitchell Butte, Eagle Mesa, Sentinel Mesa, Merrick Butte, and East Mitten Butte.
