Valley of the Gods, UT
As spectacular as Monument Valley (but free), this beautiful BLM area is in southeastern Utah southwest of Blanding between Utah Rte 95 and U.S. 163. Camping is informal and free. There are no services in this area. It is quite remote. Take U.S. 191 south out of Blanding UT to Bluff. Turn west onto U.S. 163. About 4 miles east of Utah Hwy. 261, look for "Valley of the Gods Road" to the north (right). It's a good, 2WD dirt road. Watch out for rattlesnakes here!
