We are Boon docking on Hwy 191N. Mile Marker 141, on Mill Canyon Rd, there is a staging area and just 1/2 mile past, there is a camping area. No bathrooms, only self-contained campers.
Day 1 Dinosaur Bones= We rode the wash to the wet creek bed to see the dinosaur bones buried in the creek bank. The creek bed is 30ft tall, and weather has eroded away the dirt so you can see the bones in the dirt. Rib, back, leg bones. There is even a petrified Pine Tree which stood 100ft tall
Halfway Stage Stop= Along another creek, you will find 1/2 walls of an old stone building. This would of been between the railroad and the town of Moab. By the new road we are 14 miles from town. In 1883 it took 8hrs to go to the town of Moab!
Tusher Tunnel=Once again we rode to the entrance, took the small hike to the entrance, walked thru, looking up to see daylight thru a crack, then exit the tunnel to another world.
Tusher Canyon-This is a Dead End trail, but so beautiful. On both sides of the Canyon, you will see red and white limestone, cliffs and walls. There is a small sand dune at the end.
Determination Towers= As we came upon the Towers, our breath was taken away. So big and tall, red stone and patterns on the side walls. Always a place to take some photos.
We ended the ride by going over the slickrock and around Merrimute Butte and coming out on the Colton Rd, almost back to our Camping site on Mill Canyon Rd.
