Colorado River Drive

The Colorado River in the Potash area.

"Jug Handle Arch" along highway 279.

Enlarge photo to view some of the amazing petroglyphs on the rock walls along The Colorado River.
These rock cliffs, called "wall Street", are popular with climbers.

While looking for petroglyphs we found something rarely seen; a swarm of honey bees suspended from a branch.

The dinosaur tracks found on this rock slab are said to be Allosaurus, Eubrontes and Grallator. It was a steep, somewhat treacherous climb to see them up close, probably not worth it. You can see them safely from the parking area with some binoculars.
