Flickr album link: Little Grand Canyon Overlook
A previous article features the Wedge Recreation Area, which is a great spot for picnics and camping in the San Rafael Swell region of Utah. For those who opt for an overnighter, there is no better place to soak up some majestic views at sunrise. Both the Wedge Overlook and the Little Grand Canyon Overlook are within walking distance from the recreation area campsites, so catching the early morning light is easy to do.
The San Rafael River flows way down below in this deep abyss and the views certainly are reminiscent of the western end of the grand Canyon in Arizona. The geology of this unique upheaval area is fascinating to see and it is complicated to explain, so there will be plenty to ponder over while gazing at this amazing terrain. The Little Grand Canyon Overlook certainly is an inspiration for landscape artists, so be sure to pack an artist's palette or high resolution camera for the ride!
