BLM Winter Bucket List #5: Valley of the Gods, Utah, for Red Rock Flying

BLM Winter Bucket List #5: Valley of the Gods, Utah, for Red Rock Flying

 

Public lands offer some of the most beautiful, unencumbered red rock flying in the Southwest!

 

In fact, the Salt Lake Tribune and KUED-Channel 7 featured the Annual Bluff International Balloon Festival’s morning flight over the Valley of the Gods in this year’s ‘Utah Bucket List’ series.

 

The Valley of the Gods in southeastern Utah is a hidden gem. Known for its incredible scenic value, the area offers beautiful Cedar Mesa sandstone monoliths, towering pinnacles and wide open spaces that seem to go on forever. But don’t take our word for it…see it for yourself January 16-19 in Bluff, Utah!

 

This iconic red-rock landscape was the backdrop for Forrest Gump (1994) when Forrest, played by Tom Hanks, ended his cross-country run.
