Overview

The less visited remote canyons in Southeast Utah contain rock art, Ancestral Puebloan ruins, and so much more. Come with us, and avoid the crowds at the "popular" National Parks as we explore this beautiful red rock country with its plethora of pictographs, slot canyons, hoodoos, natural bridges, and breathtaking scenery. We will visit Natural Bridges National Monument, Grand Gulch, Hovenweep, Comb Ridge and slot canyons. We will learn about the Ancestral Puebloans who occupied these lands for thousands of years. We will learn the history, archeology and geology of these special places. Join us on a journey to explore sacred places, and deepen our understanding of those who came before us.
