No, this is not Monument Valley. This is a region, located east of Round Rock Trading Post on Navajo Route 172 at the south-easternmost end of Hsbdt Valley, west of Cove Mesa.

Two sandstone rocks stand out in the middle of this valley, which is called Ts 'Ahaa''h in Navajo (Two Rocks Standing Out Together). So, the whole region itself is called Ts 'Ahaa''h. It is uncertain if the region is named in English.

To the east of these standing rocks are two Anasazi ruins. The smaller ruin has no real name, while the larger ruin is either called Ts L (There Are Rocks) or Ye'ii Sij' (Gods Lying Down). The latter name probably comes from petroglyphs that cover the inside of Ts L ruins. Information gathered here is through local resident Ellie May Reed. At one time, a road used to travel through here linking Round Rock and Cove. The road is now long gone.
