Wendy and I spent about half a week exploring parts of Escalante National Monument in Southern Utah. After picking up our 4x4 SUV in Las Vegas, we drove north to Escalante, Utah where we spent the night at a Bed and Breakfast before heading down "Hole in The Rock Road". Hole in the Rock Road was built and carved by the Mormons in the late 1800s for use as a passage through the canyon. The road was too difficult to navigate and was later abandoned. This is no National Park. You are free to hike and camp where you please. That means no improvements and you are pretty much on your own with nature. But that's what made it fun and exciting.
