My Itchy Travel Feet | The Baby Boomer's Guide To Travel

Saturday’s scene: In the Valley of the Gods

2011/03/05by Donna Hull


On a baby boomer adventure to southern Utah, Alan and I discovered Monument Valley‘s little sister. Located near Bluff, Utah, Valley of the Gods offers stunning rock formations in a quiet setting—no crowds or souvenir stands. Drive the dirt road through the valley to discover it for yourself. Boomer photographers, don’t forget to snap a photograph or two. Have you been to Valley of the Gods? Leave a comment to tell us about your experience.

I guess there is more out there than Route 66.

Route 66 is full of adventure, Mike, and a great start to exploring
the southwest. But there’s so much out there to see when you veer off
the pavement.

Linda, you’ll like the real one so much better than Disney’s
version :-). Thanks for sharing the photo.

I’m glad you enjoyed your trip to southern Utah.

I lived in northern Utah for several years. Let me recommend some fantastic sites and things to do there, should you ever decide to visit the northern part of the state:

1) Provo’s Freedom Festival: occurs the week of July 4th. Fantastic Independence Day celebration! Ends with a great event in the BYU football stadium.

2) Sundance Film Festival: if you’re a film enthusiast, this is the annual event for you! Generally held at the end of January/beginning of February.

3) Sundance: not the film festival, but the resort. Stunning location just a 20 minute drive up the canyon outside of Provo. They provide skiing in the winter, and in the summer they offer a magnificent outdoor theater! A must see!
