The Devil's Kitchen

Most everyone familiar with the state of Utah knows we have National Parks on the Southern part full of this magnificent red rock. But did you know about this red rock canyon right here up the Nebo Loop?
I did not know.










But since it was just a half-mile hike off the main loop road leading to an overlook, of course we had to go see it.
I don't think any of the kids have been to the red rock parks, or remember it. Frankly, canyons, high ledges and active children combined together inspires nothing but terror in my heart. I value my sanity more than the experience of exposing them to red rock. Beautiful though it may be.
So, this was fun to see. As we were turning to go back up the trail, Isaac lingered behind saying, "I just want to stay a couple more minutes . . . it's just soo beautiful here." Such a sensitive boy with an artistic eye. :)
So that was our little side adventure. Such fun.

That's so cool! I didn't know this place existed either. It looks very much like Bryce Canyon. I'm so glad your whole family was able to get out and enjoy nature together - it's good for the soul, and it's such a shame to not take advantage of those aspects of where you live. Utah really is such a natural wonderland.

NOOOO!!! I didn't know about it and I am feeling totally cheated for not finding it before we left! We didn't ever really do any of the red rock stuff exceot for drive right through it. All of those years we were there we spent prego, nursing, with toddlers or a back trouble...alas, my poor children were cheated out of seeing all of that. I am particularly bugged though since I did bike part of Nebo loop while at BYU and I didn't see the D Kitchen anyway!
