Trip Day 20 -- Arizona Strip & Kolob Terrace
Came back over the Kolob Terrace. Some that road is paved (on each end) with a 20 mile section of clay in the middle. It passes through the western side of Zion and there was one scenic turn off that I had to turn around go back too!
Lots of roads off the Kolob Terrace which is where I think the cars get stuck -- I've seen enough of this wet clay up at Arches National Park to know it's no joke. My Jeep with great tires did fine...you'd struggle with all season tires or even all terrain tires in this stuff.
Off course this is another YouTube famous section:
(You'll see Under Canvas in my pics...I think...when they finally get up. If not it's definitely on the video).
Went by here, too.
Casey gets involved up there, too.
Hilldale, UT / Colorado City, AZ...
...I can see why the Arizona Strip was big cattle country at one time.
I want the gas station dinosaur :)
Turned off Route 14 and now on Kolob Terrace Road or whatever it is called on this end.
Entering Zion National Park
I hope my video got some neat pics of the Kolob Village I passed through a bit before this.
Hmmm, doesn't look like I got pics of "Zion under Canvas" which was on the left around here.
Shacks, Covered Wagons, and Yurts...oh my!
Back to civilization...
