Everyone knows that Sunrise and Sunset in Monument Valley is magical. What they don’t know is they can get the same experience in Valley of the Gods without sharing it with hundreds of other people. We’ll drive you through monolithic sandstone towers and then climb up the Moki Dugway ascending 1200 feet in less than 3 miles of steep switchbacks. With breathtaking views in every direction you’ll be grateful you skipped the crowds and joined us for a sunset you’ll never forget.

Meet at Wild Expeditions in Bluff 15 minutes before your departure time which varies by time of year. All you need is a water bottle and a jacket for after the sun sets. We’ll load up the vehicle and take off down the highway through Comb Ridge and over Lime Ridge to Valley of the Gods. After about 20 minutes on the Highway we are on the Valley of the Gods scenic backway. This dirt road is maintained and accessible to most vehicles and provides excellent views of the desert towers and monuments that the Navajo stories call giants or Gods. The evening light is perfect for photos and we’ll stop at several points for a quick photo. After driving the 17 mile dirt backway we’ll head up the Moki Dugway which is a road cut into the side of Cedar Mesa climbing 1200ft. with dramatic views of the valley below.
Once on top of Cedar Mesa we’ll turn off onto another dirt road out to Muley Point. This viewpoint is the edge of Cedar Mesa and offers 270 degree views of the desert far below. Everyone can spread out to enjoy the sunset over Monument Valley. When the sun is down we’ll load backup and it’s a 20 minute drive back to Bluff.
