Hot sunny day, but excellent for hiking. We stopped at the visitor center first to see if there were any dangers that needed to be addressed, then proceeded on our way. The hike was great!

Oh, how frustrating to see something that beautiful and then to not be able to capture it with a camera! The Cliffs seem unending and their colors are beautiful. We didn't even have them on our "must do" list - but they would have made it if I'd known what they looked like!

About 2 miles on well-graded gravel road to the observation point to view California Condors. We encountered a Peregrine Fund worker who was actively observing and monitoring a few condors on the cliffs. He spent a few minutes with us, explaining the program, and even positioned his scope so we could see the condors. Watch for BLM building on 89A... More

Our day was marred by rain so the colors were less than spectacular but the awesome landscape was fantastic.

A good way to start your exploration is from the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument Visitor Center in Kanab, Utah. If you wish to hike the iconic wave you need to enter the lottery in the morning day prior. The odds depend on the size of the crowd. Vermillon Cliffs National Monument extends all the way to the area of Navajo... More

We drove this route via the 89A from the Eastern Rim drive of the Grand Canyon up to Page and the scenery is just incredible. The road isn't heavily trafficked and the sign posting isn't that informative, especially for international visitors driving here for the first time. However, driving past this area was truly memorable and highly recommended. At times... More

Did an overnight photo tour of White Pocket in the Vermilion Cliffs National Monument. Gorgeous! Photos almost took themselves - everywhere we turned, there was another great pic. Unless you know where you're going and are experienced with off-road, sandy conditions, use a guide (Grand Staircase Escalante Tours is highly recommended).
