      Drive the 17-mile dirt road through Valley of the Gods and you're left wondering why its more famous neighbor, Monument Valley, attracts visitors in almost infinitely greater numbers. Valley of the Gods features spectacular mesas, buttes and spires, but none of the crowds; it's possible you won't see another vehicle as you make your way past rock formations such as Lady In A Tub, Setting Hen Butte and Seven Sailors.

      If you go:
      The west entrance is situated on Utah Hwy 261, 10 miles north of Mexican Hat; the east entrance begins on US Hwy 163 about 7 miles east of Mexican Hat. The road through the park is level graded dirt; a high clearance vehicle is generally recommended.
