After we left Bluff, Utah we headed farther South and discovered the Valley of the Gods. It is named the Valley of the Gods because many of the rock formations were named after gods of various religions. (This is apparently a theme throughout the west, as many rock formations are named after saints, gods, etc.) We didn’t have a map of the valley so we can’t tell you exactly which formations are named after which gods but it was a really neat drive anyway.
The Valley of the Gods is easy to find, it is along the way to the Mexican Hat rock formation (which looks like a head wearing a sombrero incase you were wondering where the name came from) on US 191. We didn’t stop for Mexican Hat, so no photo, but we did see it from the highway.
Speaking of the highway, how cool is this shot of the highway coming and going form nowhere, and nothing in sight for miles!
Then Sandra spotted this rock formation and thought it looked like an Owl. Good thing it’s not a real Owl, or we would be an easy meal because that’s a big Owl! ;o)
