Utah's outstanding scenic diversity is matched perfectly by the variety of dining experiences available to the traveler. Southeastern Utah's Bluff, one of Utah's gateway to the Four Corners region and Monument Valley, offers a creative and local-centric meal at the Cow Canyon Trading Post, featuring an exquisite menu with emphasis on quality. Established in the late 19th century by folks who traveled the Hole-In-The-Rock expedition, Bluff still has many sandstone Victorian-era homes built by these settlers. These were not the first people to settle in this valley, however. Ancestral Puebloan people built residences, farmed the flats, and lived here thousands of years ago. Today, descendants of the Mormon pioneers rub elbows with more recent settlers, Native Americans, and visitors. This village is an important stop on the Trail of the Ancients National Scenic Byway and is the beginning point for adventures on the San Juan River. Bluff hosts the Annual International Bluff Balloon Festival in January, the Navajo Fair and Rodeo in September and the Bluff Arts Festival in November.
