- NATIONAL MONUMENT -
A Delicate Place of Solitude, Beauty & Wonder
Mule Canyon is a cluster of ancestral Anasazi ruins located in the Shash Jaa Unit near Blanding Utah. The well preserved Anasazi ruins found at this site are over 700 years old. The ruin complex includes above-ground and under-ground dwellings: a kiva and tower which have been excavated and stabilized as well as a block of twelve rooms.
Valley of the Gods is one of our favorite hidden gems. Compared often to the nearby Monument Valley, guests are blown away by the large buttes, isolated pinnacles and large mesa walls that surround the entire valley. Exploring Valley of the Gods doesn't require a guide or permit. It is available for biking, hiking, camping, and driving.
Built around an existing Anasazi village, Edge of the Cedars State Park Museum serves as the primary repository for archaeological materials excavated from public lands in southeast Utah. It is also home to the largest collection of Anasazi pottery and artifacts on the West Coast. It also serves as a Bears Ears Education Center.
