There's a rugged patch of southern Utah that's so far off the well-trodden path that many travelers find it only by mistake. This slice of the state is vast and sprawling, a broken-down, red-rock landscape of arroyos and buttes and mile after mile of mile after mile. But even in this terrain, the Valley of the Gods is deliciously remote, so far gone that not even cell phones catch a signal.
The valley has many mystic treasures which are guarded by creatures. It is believed to be protected by the sacred powers. This is definitely red desert land and the colors seem to change throughout the day. There are many buttes, spires, and monuments throughout this area. Monument Valley can be seen in the distance from parts of the road. The quietness is almost as deafening as the sights are beautiful in every direction.
Valley Of The Gods in Southern Utah south of Moab, off of Highway 163 less than 15 miles south of the town of Bluff, and north of Mexican Hat is a stunning desertscape without the bustle of nearby Monument Valley.
