By far the coolest sight around these parts, Shiprock looms eerily over the landscape 40 miles west of Farmington. A 1700ft-high volcanic plug and a lofty landmark for Anglo pioneers, it’s also a sacred site to the Navajo. While it's visible from Hwy 64, you’ll get better views from Hwy 491 (which when known as Hwy 666 had a starring role in Oliver Stone's Natural Born Killers ). Indian Hwy 13, which almost skirts its base, is another good photo-op area.
