North of Moab, Utah
I continued on for another quarter of a mile to the trail's end at the edge of a cliff
overlooking Salt Valley.
What a rewarding view.
I just didn't want to leave this spot but had to head back for home eventually.
When I got back to the sign about the dinosaur tracks saying you had arrived and not to put water in the tracks I looked down at my feet and saw I had been standing right on top of a mess of tracks and wasn't even aware of it at the time. Yep, I should be embarrassed.
The hike back (all down hill) didn't seem to take long and I was able to enjoy the scenery more not having to concentrate so much on yellow splotches of paint and small piles of rocks to guide my way.
All the way back to camp I thought about how this was one of the best hikes I had been on for quite some time. I really enjoyed it. This is a great area.
