About this map
Name: Monument Valley topographic map, elevation, terrain.
Average elevation: 5,505 ft
Minimum elevation: 5,203 ft
Maximum elevation: 6,621 ft
The area is part of the Colorado Plateau. The elevation of the valley floor ranges from 5,000 to 6,000 feet (1,500 to 1,800 m) above sea level. The floor is largely siltstone of the Cutler Group, or sand derived from it, deposited by the meandering rivers that carved the valley. The valley's vivid red color comes from iron oxide exposed in the weathered siltstone. The darker, blue-gray rocks in the valley get their color from manganese oxide.
