Kane County - Unnamed Peak (Andy Nelson Peak) Professional Review and Guide

"“Terrible and beautiful wasteland…. Colored by every color of the spectrum…. Sculpted by sandblast winds…. Carved, broken and split by canyons so deep and narrow that the rivers run in sunless depths.” That’s how author Wallace Stegner described Kane County in his 1942 book Mormon Country. It also could be a word picture of the view from Kane County’s highest peak, an unnamed point at 10,027 feet.

Rising from the shore of Navajo Lake, this gently sloping mound has the Virgin River’s headwater bubbling from its south face. The colorfully warped landscape of Cedar Breaks National Monument begins fading below. And wrapping its flanks are the Pink Cliffs, named for their color. Beauty and food have drawn humans to this rest stop for more than 1,000 years. Hunting, fishing and a variety of plants led the Anasazi, Fremont, Navajo and Piute to make this their summer home."
