Valley of the Gods, a beautiful sandstone valley, is located north of Monument Valley and near Mexican Hat in southeastern Utah.
The views across the valley floor, beautiful Cedar Mesa sandstone monoliths, pinnacles and other geological features of this enchanted and magical area, framed in by the silhouettes of the nearby Monument Valley are breathtaking. This is so reachable, so touchable with dirt roads to get closer to those majestic monuments, those work of Art. There is a transformation that takes place here, seems like Life has again slowed down and one can get into the deeper part of Life itself, there is nothing but vast empty spaces, there is undisturbed Peace inducing an incredible detachment from what one has been programmed to live through as nothing besides the monuments seemed to have changed throughout those millions of years of existence.
Like the Valley of Fire in Nevada or Snow Canyon in Utah, the Valley of the Gods is an unforgettable side trip through an incomparable land. Someone described it as "Monument Valley writ small." But it is much more than that. The Valley of the Gods is a cameo of the American West.
