The Monticello Field Office is located in the southeast corner of Utah and is part of the Colorado Plateau region. Dominating the landscape near Monticello are the Abajo Mountains, BLM land surrounds this huge monolith.

South of the Abajos is the Comb Ridge Monocline, a major crustal uplift about 80 miles in length. Nearby this major uplift is Grand Gulch, which cuts a serpentine swath through Cedar Mesa.

The Ancestral Puebloans left a legacy that includes hundreds of cliff dwellings and thousands of pictographs and petroglyphs. Muley Point Overlook sits on a high rim of Cedar Mesa and offers sweeping panoramic view across Monument Valley and the San Juan River country far below.
