From Boulder Town, UT 12 climbs sharply, roughly 3000 feet in 10 miles. Suddenly you are in deep pine forest, on top of the mesa with the red-and-white edges of distant mesas visible
thousands of feet below.
Panorama from Point Lookout.
Access to the canyon was a huge disappointment, but we were delighted by clusters of Rocky Mountain Bee Plants,
which were abuzz not only with bees but also hummingbirds.
We ended up camped on a side road, where nearby "Ant Hill" was the only bump on the landscape taller than the oil rigs.
