This should be on everyone’s list!! Literally the definition of “Wild West”. Highly enjoyed the geological and historical info from the audio.
Excellent content on the Navajo, history, and geology of these huge landscape formations.
Why isn’t this part of the official Utah Mighty Five! Great detour... highly recommend driving in and learning about these huge stone “monuments”. We felt like little ants in the face of a huge world made up of time.
