Mexican Hat Rock, Utah

Imagine, you are driving along through some of the most ridiculously beautiful landscapes in the world and you see a sign that says the next city is Mexican Hat. Your mind would race to think why did they name the place as it is called and of course you are wondering how it would look.

Mexican Hat is a sombrero used still by Mariachi musicians and it looks just like the one you see in the above picture. But this town, Mexican Hat, just has 31 people and is one of the most spectacular things to see in this earth. The San Juan river flows near by and sunsets are spectacular.

This rock is actually a few miles north of the town and one can easily see it as they drive along the highway. We were very fortunate during our drive that thunderstorms were all around and it gave a beautiful glow on the rock.
