As day 4 began, I arose early and headed back down US 191, the same road I had traveled two days ago, in the dark. And just as I suspected, there was quite a bit to see, that I missed.
I stopped for just a moment to watch the sun rising behind Wilson Arch. Finally, an arch that didn’t require a mile long hike: Wilson Arch is right at the edge of the highway.
In the rear view mirror: a look back at the LaSal Mountains.
From here, our trip continues back down US 191, past Monticello and Blanding, to the intersection of UT 95: an incredible road that will take us northwest across the state.
Note: This trip was first published in 2004.
