As we can't get into Red Canyon Campground until Friday, when it opens, we got one more night at Kodachrome. We had to move to a different spot, also full hookups, as someone was coming in our original spot. Once we got that taken care of, we decided to take a drive on the Scenic Byway 12 towards Escalante. This is through some of the Grand Staircase-Escante National Momument. This area and Capital Reef National Park are areas we want to get to the next time we are in the area. We could easily spend a month in those areas alone. There are lakes and 4 wheel drive and hiking trails off the Highway. Driving on the highway itself, we pass slickrocks, variegated buttees and mesas, canyons and rock walls. We stopped at the Upper Valley Granaries, where a small structure is tucked into the cliff face and was constructed by Ancient Puebloans.
We next made a stop at the Head of the Rocks Overlook.
