Recently I've been experiencing that old archaeology/ghost town/hiking bug. This is fine, except for two things: I don't really know where to go (that I haven't been to before), and it's been bad weather on days (ie today) when I could go and do something (OK, third thing, I'd like to have someone to go with, too).
So, just barely I started to create a list of places that I'd like to explore in Utah. I've realized that a lot of these places aren't quite so close that I could visit them in an afternoon after work, so if you've got any suggestions for places to see that are, you know, closer, I'd love to have them! I am, however, pretty much open to any and all suggestions. My only requirement for this list is that all the sites have to be in UT*.
These sites are in no particular order, other than that in which I thought of them:
St. George Temple Quarry
Silver Reef Cemetery
Calf Creek Falls
Simpson Springs Station
Red Cliffs Recreation Site Ruins (Felix, this is near where you almost drowned!)
Fort Pearce (Petroglyphs)
Nine Mile Canyon
Buckhorn Wash Rock Art
Potash Road Rock Art
Sand Island Petroglyphs
Frisco Cemetery (I have been to Frisco, but we never found the cemetery. I have since contacted someone that's been to the cemetery, and they've told me how to get there. Need 4-wheel drive, most likely.)
Volunteers for tour guides/explorations buddies are also being accepted. Just sayin'.
You can view my updated list by clicking HERE (you know, for when I actually update it).
*We're counting the Arizona Strip as part of Utah here.
