Riding thru the Valley Of The Gods is very easy riding-----I think you could get a motorhome thru there.
I was hiding behind this rock and jump out in front of Bill and went ----BOOoooooooo!
He ain't skeert !!!
The Valley of The Gods road popped out just below what is called the "Moki Dugway".
A mind boggling set of switchbacks that climb out of the basin you see below.
I've been told that there was no way the state was going to build a road off the top of the mesa down into Mexican Hat.
But a mine operation provided the means to do just that. It's about a thousand feet of elevation difference.
It was only a month before we left to do this trip when I was using google earth and found "Muley Point"
Right at the top of the Dugway is a 5 mile long dirt road that leads you out to it.
I had so hoped to end up here a few hours before nightfall---and it worked out perfect.
This was the only day---I tried to make a destination-----as I knew this place was going to be special.
