We took a shortcut through Escalante Park on our way to Vegas.
We were smart enough to stop at the Land Management office which was close by, the fellow said to bring water as you won't see many folks, and the drive won't really save time.
It was a long drive, very beautiful, remote, with all sorts of landscape, and I heartedly recommend it, it included double stone arches.
The drive took about 3 hours and there was once spot where the road was like a V and the point of the road was a little washed out, but we drove down and then up with only a little scraping on the bumper bottom.
Right as we were expecting to get to the end we came face to face with this.
Cattle and a river in the way.
After a bunch of waiting and dreading the drive back, I drove along the stream and got out and walked in the water to see if the bottom was mud or solid.
Lucky us it was solid, so I drove at an angle across the water to end up behind the cattle who didn't care to move and then I backed up the little hill.
