#TravelTuesday to the stunning Indian Creek Canyon in Utah

Fall brings some of the best weather and temperatures to enjoy Utah’s Indian Creek Canyon.  Sandstone cliffs attract rock climbers from around the nation while visitors interested in a casual stroll can discover petroglyph panels that are in hidden locations, or found at the more obvious Newspaper Rock panel.  Visitors who enjoy connecting with nature can find several primitive campgrounds that have limited facilities but unlimited scenery.  Tall cliffs and towering red-rock formations that seemingly defy gravity surround one in all directions. They include the iconic “Sixshooters”, two buttes with tall spires that have served as must-have backdrops for countless photographs, so don’t forget to bring your cameras!
