Skyline Drive in the Manti-La Sal Forest

Early in August we explored Skyline Drive on the ridge line of the Manti-La Sal Forest.  We joined the road at the top of Fairview Canyon.  The Aspen trees were beautiful and the dirt road well maintained on this portion.

We felt like we were on top of the world and could see for miles and miles.

It was green and beautiful with an abundance of wild flowers.


We saw many sheep herder wagons and eventually found sheep grazing right next to the road.

I had to get a closeup.

Looking east from the road.  I love the cloud formations in this shot.

Masses of wild flowers.

Flowers making it work in very rocky soil.

A variety of wild flowers.

The farther we drove south, the rougher the road.  Soon after seeing this sign we took a road west down the mountain and into Spring City.  It was in really great shape and we descended quickly through several vegetative zones before arriving in artful Spring City.  It was a fun adventure!
