If the road-less-traveled is your middle name, I’ve got the perfect day-long itinerary for you in Valley of the Gods and Bluff. It’s full of epic scenery, history, and a chance to connect with Mother Nature like never before. Within the vast expanse of southern Utah, it’s a quieter untouched, quieter cousin of Monument Valley; see Pro Tips below for the differences between them.
Beneath a deep blue sky canvas, this secluded valley harbors sandstone behemoths, rising from the desert floor, carving out a divine skyline. Unspoiled by commercialization, it promises a day of solitude and a soulful connection with nature’s raw grandeur.
As dawn breaks, get to the precipice of a majestic overlook. As the sun ascends, you journey deeper into the valley. Solitude accompanies. Break your day with homegrown eateries in humble Bluff. Catch the mellow hues of dusk and a blanket of countless stars in the desert night sky.
