Monticello, Utah

I spent a week and a half in Monticello, Utah. Nice little town, not a lot going on, nothing at all on Sundays. This was a good thing. I had a programming project that I needed to complete, the only distractions was trying to find food. I finished it. It is exactly what I needed. And now I could leave Monticello.

I headed west into Manti-La Sal National Forest, there was a long, twisty route that was just about what I was looking for. Manti-La Sal National Forest, is a well-kept secret and the locals want to keep it that way. It offeres a wide variety of terrain from jush forests to arid canyon lands. One ot the swell bits is the Dark Canyon Wilderness, still a largely unexplored area. Tree

The dirt met the pavement right near Natural Bridges National Monument, so naturally I went in and had a peek.
