My friend and I decided to not only take this scenic drive, but to stop at the jeep arch trail. This was a quiet place and during our 2.5 hours we only ran I to one set of hikers. Fun day. Great views. Free is always a plus too.

Every time I drive down the Potash Road I see something new. The petroglyphs are a prime example. This time I found several new petroglyphs I hadn't seen before, and they were clearly marked by the BLM for preservation purposes. Look, but don't touch !

Great scenic and require 4x4 to go there. U will find movies made these area along the road. U can get info from ranger and will tell u on the map u can find. It takes about 2-3 hours from park to Moab depend on your driving and stops.

We took the route from top of the rim in CanyonLands down Shafer Trail. This part definitely requires a good 4 wheel drive vehicle. The lower part is a gravel road with great scenery.

We drove on this road to take a look at some climbing walls. The drive alone is worth it. Really gorgeous canyons and red rocks.

We were encouraged to take this road prior to coming to Moab, so we did, and we were glad we did! The pictographs are really good, there are fossilized dinosaur tracks, and the canyon is great, too.

Instead of driving down the old dusty trail we included it in our air tour by through the Canyonlands. Flying by helicopter down the Colorado River was fun. We spotted wildlife and birds along the way. So no dust for us.

We took this road on our way to put into the Colorado River. Passed the old Potash Plant on our way to the boat ramp. Peaceful, quiet and beautiful. We saw many blue herons in the area. A river trip is the way to see this area for sure!

I had an absolute blast driving this old dusty trail along the Colorado. "Very very very cool" is an understatement! I felt like I was driving the jeep through a John Wayne movie backdrop. I can't wait to go back and try the whole thing with my own Jeep.
