Valley of the Gods
A breathtaking location, the Valley of the Gods is filled with stone pinnacles and jutting buttes that dot the flat valley floor. A scenic, 17-mile dirt road loops through the area and, while there are no designated campgrounds, dispersed camping is allowed, as is backcountry hiking. The area is north of the town of Mexican Hat, Utah, which has some lodging and food options as well as a gas station, but there are no services or facilities in the Valley of the Gods itself.

Valley of the Gods
Located just an hour from Monument Valley you will find the Valley of the Gods. There are two things that make this spot interesting. First it has similar rock and land formations and second it is free! (I could say that it is also less crowded). The route is self-guided and a great place to photograph at your own pace. There are plenty of spots to pull off the road for a picnic lunch (or just to admire the view) and you don't feel rushed or crowded.

Moki Dugway
We opted to take the more scenic but precarious route from Bluff to Green river via the windy Moki Dugway in the Valley of the Gods. Not recommended for drivers who fear heights.
