SOMEWHERE IN SOUTHWESTERN UTAH ON THE ROAD LESS TRAVELED
We took off thinking we were going to take a back road to Cedar Breaks and Cedar City. It wasn't long before we were hitting snow and ice. The maps we were using showed conflicting information. One said you could go all the way to Hwy 14 and Cedar City but another said the road ended at Kolob Reservoir. New to the area and no four wheel drive we decided to wander around on the plateau where we found ourselves.
Koty was all for it because this wasn't Federal land so he could get out and stretch his legs and try his paws at a little rabbit catching.
We are very respectful of no trespassing signs. After all we are property owners too and don't take kindly to trespassers ourselves. But, we didn't see any so we just headed out across the landscape. I figured if we were in the wrong place someone would come along and let us know. A few pickups looked like they slowed to glass us but then just drove on.
We discovered this big guy. Looks like an indian chief to me. I have no way of knowing if this natural sculpture has an official name.
We just love to get off the beaten path you just never know what you're going to find. But, usually you'll find some interesting treasures.
Our explorations were suddenly halted as we soon discovered that we were high up on a plateau and it was a long way down. The vistas are amazing but they seldom photograph all that well. I recommend you come see for yourself. I guarantee you will not be disappointed.
So, today we took the road less traveled and we not in the least disappointed in what we found. Truth is we seldom are.

Ciao for now,
