22-24 May 2019, White Pocket, AZ
One of the neatest places we’ve been is located near the Utah /Arizona border in Vermillion Cliffs National Monument. It took two hours driving a sandy 4×4 trail (in the rain) to reach our destination, White Pocket – and did I mention the clay dirt road leading to the trail – which was almost impassable when wet… We had to disconnect our Jeep to maneuver the trail!
The rain actually made the sand a bit easier to drive on, but the long drive made the area very desolate – not many others attempted to explore this area while we were there.
Once we found a level (and not so muddy spot) to camp, we began exploring the area. As we hiked around, I was taken with the thought that this would be a perfect spot for a Star Trek episode! There were so many odd features that it felt like we were on another planet. The colors and patterns of the rock were mind-blowing!
What a cool, cool place!
