Day 10: Fairyland

We found our way to the last overlook of the day, Fairyland Point, which is just outside the gate – the erosion here is so severe that the overlook may not be here in 60 years! We had lunch, and began the long drive to Salt Lake City.

Again, nature didn’t fail to inspire – after a dullish ride across an endlessly empty plain, we found ourselves in the aptly named Red Rock Canyon, with the weirdly shaped red cliffs and hoodoos rising out of the ground, more eroded into rounded forms than elsewhere.
