Barren, bleak, and unoccupied are probably the words most often used to describe the Price area, but the place is much more than that to those who spend time exploring its lovely realms. Travel around the region and you’ll find a world of towering sandstone walls and monoliths, strange formations—some of which do indeed look like castles—and a whole lot more. In addition, there are quiet oases of cottonwoods and water that attract a variety of animal life, tall forests and open meadows where you can find moose and solitude, and places where ancient drawings and etchings lure visitors from all around. In addition to being what I’d rather call remote and unencumbered, the Price area embraces part of the Manti–La Sal National Forest, where cool, lush, high-elevation refuges provide places for folks to come and fish, ride their OHVs, hike, ride horseback, photograph some vistas that beg to be captured on film, or just sit and enjoy the shade and scenery. Fortunately, there’s a campground at the San Rafael Swell. Located along the San Rafael River and close (you can see some of the routes from there) to hundreds of climbs, the place is a marvelous geologic wonder.
