Top photo is the Moki Dugway. It is a switchback that runs down from Cedar Mesa and is partially dirt and paved (more dirt). It is an easy switchback and has some great places to pull off and take photos.

This map shows in perspective where Blanding is to the Valley of the Gods/Moki Dugway and Goosenecks.


This shows the Valley of the Gods road, which is dirt and shows where it comes out to the paved road and how close to the Moki Dugway the road is. The purple highlighted road is all paved.


If you stay on Hwy 163 south, you go into Monument Valley.

Best time to visit I would say is Oct or very early Nov. Temps are dropping, so is the population. Still busy, but Oct in Moab might be the best month.
July/Aug is the least populated by tourists, but also hot. Can easily exceed 100 degrees many days. Sept is really nice, but still a ton of tourists. Dec-March can be nice but very unpredictable weather wise. April-June...busy, but usually moderate temps.

I usually take a two-week vacation the first of July, and usually head north to northern ID/WY or Montana.

Goosenecks is a cool view, but for state parks, not sure if it matches Deadhorse Point. Sunrise photos are great...


But even in full daylight it ain't bad...

Anyone with a decent 4x4, you can always visit Riverhouse...(4x4 is needed or a trip down the San Juan river)

@f5, are most of the parks, Arches, Natural Bridges etc allow POV's. I know in Zion they limit traffic up road to the Narrows.

No restrictions on any of the paved roads in Arches, Canyonlands or Natural bridges...yet. There is talk of doing busses in Arches someday, but it won't be for years.
There are restriction on the unpaved roads such as no ATVs/UTVs, dogs on some roads, etc.

I'll chime in with this - We just did a tour of Goblin Valley SP, Kodachrome NM, Petrified Forest SP, Grand Staircase-Escalante NM, Capitol Reef NP, Bryce NP, and Zion NP. Petrified Forest SP was a little gem, but not much to do there but one hike. UT takes their state parks seriously, they are nice.
