This entrance to the park is 25 miles off the main road (no food, gas, or lodging), but well worth a visit. The views reminded me of the Grand Canyon...after all, the "Island in the Sky is bordered by the Green River to the west and the Colorado River to the east, and the convergence of these two mighty rivers (into the Mighty Colorado that eventually flows into the Grand Canyon) is just South of "Island in the Sky." Although we did no hiking, we did stop at every overlook and easily took four hours savoring every breathtaking, expansive view. Not so well known as the Grand Canyon so there was little traffic. A very special place!
