The Colorado Plateau is home to some of the most bizarre rock formations found in the world. The Northwest section is where one will find a great collection of slot canyons that are accessible to the average hiker along with great rock formation.
Hanksville, Utah is a small but convenient base to explore the slots of the San Rafael Swell, western Canyonlands NP, and Goblin Valley State Park.
To explore the great variety of slots of the Escalante River and it's branches, Escalante, Utah is an ideal location. While exploring there is available a multitude of side trips to the waterfalls of Calf Creek, Bryce Canyon National Park and Devil's Garden.
