The Ziggurat

The Ziggurat of the Gods
We approached the ziggurat
Towing over thirty feet of living space
Exiting
The Valley of the Gods

More than a thousand feet straight up
Of switchbacks, gravel and steep grades
I wondered
At the wisdom of this drive

But then the thought occurred to me
That each adventure ever had
Begins with
Just a little bit of faith

Highway 261
The Valley of the Gods
Near Bluff
Utah, United States of America
And, as it turns out, the faith was well rewarded. Several posts on this blog feature images taken near the top of this cliff.

The sign reads:

10% grades
5 mph switchbacks
Narrow gravel road
1 mile
