The Paria River has cut deep into the soft sandstone, hundreds of feet deep, and the walls of the canyon are striated in bands of pink and red and ocher and copper and gold, smoothed by water into intricate rippled patterns and glazed by the sun.
This place is so beautiful! We rented a 4 wheel drive jeep to go here after reading other reviews and would not want to attempt visiting without that. It was a rough ride, but so fun! The old cemetery was very interesting. It's well worth...More
This place was absolutely stunning! The colors are amazing. The road gets really rough for the last part. We drove all the way in, in a Kia Sportage, and there were a couple of times we worried about bottoming out the vehicle. It was so...More
