Newspaper Rock | Adventurin' | Monticello

Located just West of Church Rock (above) you'll find yourself on a nice 20 minute drive to Newspaper Rock. You'll also pass a bunch of abandoned cabins that once belonged to a religious cult that worshiped Church Rock. (Things only the locals tell you.) Think of Newspaper Rock like a Facebook and Twitter Page only a 2000 year old version. Could you imagine sitting there and chiseling out your story, who knew how long that would take you? This petroglyph site is 200 square foot area one the largest and best preserved. We came up with all sorts of theories

Canyon Country Discovery Center | Four Corners School | Monticello

The main reason The Salt Project even went to Monticello, was because of the Canyon Country Discovery Center. We'd been e-mailing back and forth and they opened out eyes to how much we were missing!

When I plan a trip, I get on Pinterest, Google Maps, city websites, ask a local (if I know one)... you get the idea. I'm not

Natural Bridges National Monument | Owachomo Bridge Hike

After hiking Butler Wash, we took a nice drive to Natural Bridges National Monument. Mouthful right? You could spend a whole day or a few hours (like we did.) You can drive through and visit the look outs, or do a few short hikes. I feel like this is a hidden gem. I'm so glad we bought our National Parks Pass last year, we've used it a ton! We stopped at the visitor center to get our stamp in our travel journal. My Aiko (3 yrs) LOVES it. I had to take a photo of this phone. It's been many
