Buckhorn Wash - The Wedge Overlook Professional Review and Guide

"The San Rafael Swell is graced with redrock architecture that hallmarks southern Utah’s famed national parks. But unlike those national parking lots to which Edward Abbey has referred, the San Rafael Swell sees far fewer visitors, thus enabling it to retain its primitive beauty. Interstate 70 bisects the Swell, making access utterly convenient.

The fat-tire desert rat on the other hand, who cares not that skin turns to leather under the searing sun or that hair becomes a bristly mop when caked with dust, will enter the Swell and not resurface for days until this desert sanctuary has filled the soul. For those somewhere in between, who are intrigued by the San Rafael Swell’s austere offerings but are not of the nomadic breed, the Buckhorn Wash-Wedge Overlook tour is a fine introduction. Tread: Light duty sand and dirt roads, with variable washboards that are suitable for passenger cars when dry."
