    Interred our cat in Angels Overlook. If you’re a pet lover you should take the drive through Kanab Canyon and spend some time with pets that have passed. It’s a wonderful,place.

    I was lucky to score a permit to visit this magical place. Our tour guide, Dreamland Sarai Tours, advised us how to get the permit. I was on the website exactly when the site opened for applications. The hike was extremely memorable due to all the geological formations and incredible rock colors and patterns. Recommend hiring a guide as it’s a rough drive and there is no actual trail.

    We camped here for 3 days. Very nice park with some great vistas of large coral pink colored sand dunes. Lots of hiking, quad riding, and "sand boarding and sand sledding" If in the area make it a point to visit.

    We hiked about 10 miles of Wire Pass/Buckskin Gulch. The access road — House Rock Rd — to the trailhead is 8.3 miles of small ruts and washboard but it’s passable as long as it isn’t wet. The hike through the slot in Wire Pass is relatively packed down, is easily negotiated, even the ladder section over the boulder blockage. Exiting the Wire Pass trail look low on the rock face to the right for petroglyphs. Turning left (north) into Buckskin Leads again to more of the slot canyon which is again easily negotiated. This section widens in a mile or so and eventually leads to the Upper Buckskin trailhead. Returning then heading south in Buckskin Gulch rewards you with more of the slot canyon, widens at Buckskin Overlook then continues on for miles.

    If you’re looking for a hike as an alternative to The Wave, this would be a great choice. The walls tower above you, it’s cool in the slot and the colors are stunning. A must do while in Kanab.

    Not being sure of what to expect, we were pleasantly surprised. The interesting geology and the incredible colors was cause for many stops for pictures. Well worth the time to meander down the road

    Look for my review of Wire Pass. Buckskin Gulch connects with Wire Pass and is also the access trail to the Wave.

    This is a beautiful drive through the grand staircase national monument. We drove the entire distance in a wrangler without using 4x4 in just over 2 hours. We planned to drive back the same way but with temps in the low 50s we noticed the road was very muddy and we decided not to chance it and took the highway back. Mid January with dry conditions for weeks before we drove it but still the road was a mess and our Jeep looked like it had been through hell and back. Keep in mind if heading out here it’s pretty sketchy in quite a few spots-

    This was a great activity to break up our time outdoors in the surrounding parks. A short walk away from the heart of Kanab, the hosts were incredibly friendly, knowledgeable, and accommodating. The home was beautiful and interesting, a step back into a simpler time. And on top of all that, it was free!

    Nobody has clearly defined where Old Paria is. Are people here referring to South Coyote Buttes or White Pockets as the same place as Old Pariah?

    Reasons you might want to stop here: The cave is cool on hot days. Kids will most likely enjoy the exhibits of dinosaur tracks, arrowheads and Native American pottery, fossils, minerals, and such. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable of the history of the cave (quite interesting).

    Reasons you might not want to stop here: Cost is $7 per person. It is kind of a tourist trap. The exhibits I mentioned above don't interest you.

    I found the history of the cave more interesting than I thought and ended up staying longer than I had planned. Overall, I had a good time here.

    The lady inside was really nice, but the museum is just really run down. There was a few structures that seemed in good repair, but several that need to be fixed.

    We were looking for dog friendly trails to hike and came across this one. We did the hike around sunset when it was slightly cooler. The views were incredible and the pups & humans equally enjoyed the experience!

    Went to the Patsy Cline performance with friends who have worked in the theater. We all left raving about the professionalism. Her voice is splendid, the parts played well -- all done in a sweet, recently renovated local theater. A real gift to Kanab.

    Because of the mangum wild fire, the north rim of the Grand canyon was closed because of access on 89A. Our VRBO host recommended we check out lick wash while we were in the Kanab area. It was definitely a bit of a drive to get our there, but we saw cool things!

    First, you pass thru Johnson Canyon where there are gorgeous cattle farms amidst green pasture.

    We saw mule deer out among the sage as the elevation grew.

    We took a wrong turn down one of the dirt roads and ran into a herd of long, and I mean LONG horn cattle and their calfs. So fun as these animals are HUGE.

    We passed by Deer Springs Ranch, where we took a spin in. It’s legit, got a couple sodas out of their self pay fridge as nobody was around.

    When we finally arrived at the parking lot, you cross a small wash and start into the slot canyon. It’s not as great as some of the others we did on our trip, but because of the higher elevation there are ponderosa pine & different kinds of white rock that we hadn’t seen previously, so it was beautiful. There are large pine that have fallen across the canyon and are fun to climb on.

    We also found a Kangaroo Rat, as well as a little baby squirrel that had fallen into the canyon from high above.

    This place is remote so you may not see anyone else there, which is NICE. We ran into “Finius the Skinniest” and his lady, Breezy, and talked with them for a bit. Turns out we looked him up & has half a million followers on his video blog FB page where they post about their hikes in the area.
