Valley of the Gods

Valley of the Gods is another beautiful 17-mile dirt road loop outside Monument Valley. This one is in Utah, near Mexican Hat, UT.

Description from the web: “This is a smaller scale version of Monument Valley, with tall, red, isolated sandstone mesas and cliffs standing above the level valley floor, remnants of some ancient landscape. The area may be toured via a 17 mile dirt road that winds amongst the eerie formations; this is rather steep and bumpy in parts but should be passable by normal vehicles in good weather. The western end joins UT 261 shortly before its 1,200 foot ascent up Cedar Mesa, while the eastern end starts 9 miles from town along US 163 and heads north, initially crossing flat, open land and following the course of Lime Creek, a seasonal wash, before turning west towards the buttes and pinnacles.”
