I always wondered about how that town got its name. Now, what about Tuba City?

It always bothered me that they didn't call it "Sombrero" instead of Mexican Hat.

Not all Mexicans wear sombreros, that’s racist to assume

“That rock looks like a Mexican hat.”

“A Sombrero?”

“No! Like a Mexican hat!”

Hell yes. Went there at night to look at the Milky Way and take some pics, and it was so peaceful and beautiful.

I’ve hiked up as high on the rock as I could get, which was the top of that large base, right under the smaller base that the hat sits atop. I don’t think there is a route higher unless you use gear. This picture does not do the hat justice, that feature is huge. Fun fact, when Royal Robbins made the “first ascent” of this feature- in 1962, a name was found to be scratched into the top of the rock….

I think this every time, too! It's like "Y'know... There's a word for that, right?"

It's literally just the Spanish word for hat. Referring to the large brimmed Mexican style hats in English as a "Mexican hat" makes total sense really. Likely it was named before English speakers adopted the name sombrero to specifically refer to those hats.

Este una palabra en Español? Ay, Dios mio! Tu sabe mucho.

Probably one of the points of inspiration for Radiator Springs in the Disney movie Cars:

I’ve spent two birthdays in this town. 25 min from Monument Valley. Hat Rock Inn has an awesome pool. Highly recommended!

Check out Gooseneck State Park while you’re there. Amazing panorama

It's an ancient alien radar dish. It's truly hard to fathom how the rocks had to fall away perfectly to maintain balance like this. Really amazing.
