Storm and I gingerly explore the scenic roads and easier trails around the Vermilion Cliffs and Grand Staircase-Escalade. Until we install a lift kit on the Jeep, we are trying to be gentle with it.

Here are some scenes from our recent southwest Utah sojourn.
When we leave the Toadstools toward lunch in Page, AZ, we notice that the pavement is decorated with creative tar strips. Guess all that natural wonder inspired the road workers!
Cottonwood Canyon Road
Cottonwood Canyon Road through Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument is a winding dirt road that showcases the natural wonder of this area. You can take in miles of beauty without getting out of the car.
