This 45,000 acre Wilderness, managed by the BLM is a desolate moonscape of eroded formations and hoodoos. It is found by following a broad wash from the parking area. Follow the fence on the left. You can follow the wash areas to access the many formations. There is something different around every turn from delicately balanced rocks on sandstone piers to striated mounds of color. Best times are spring and fall. It can be hot in the summer and cold in the fall and winter. Bring water and check weather conditions. The road becomes slick and empassable in wet conditions. Early morning and late afternoon light is fantastic. However because of the landscapes monochromatic color shooting digital will allow you photographic opportunites all day. The contrasty images make beautiful black and whites. Also check the moonrise and set schedules. It is a good idea to mark the parking lot location on your GPS. You can use this a GOTO when navigating out after sunset. Make sure you have a headlamp and extra batteries. This is a very fragile area. All visitors should tread lightly. Pack it in and out. Please do your part to take care of this special place.
