McInnis Canyons National Conservation Area for another day of hiking – Rabbit’s Ear Mesa Trail to overlook Colorado River, close to the Utah border (Exit 2 on I-70).

It took an hour to hike to this spot, 700-feet elevation gain, but worth every step for the view!

Clever stone arm chairs were created in this perfect overlook for us to appreciate.

Another day we headed to Devil’s Canyon trail under dark skies.

The lighting was very interesting with the sun shining on the Book Cliffs across the valley.

We got caught in the rain but it made all the rocks shine – even though it also made the trail a bit slick and muddy.
