Dark Skies and Treasure Rocks in Kanab…….

Fall 2021

I had read about Dark Skies RV park near Kanab, Utah in several reviews and articles and the comments were uniformly positive so I booked it for a stop. It did not disappoint - great views, nice amenities at each site and wonderful hospitality. In fact, the view from our site was good enough to paint! And at night the stars and planets filled the sky!

Jim asked the owner about good places for rockhounding and he directed us to some amazing public land. It looked almost like an Easter egg hunt with colorful and interesting rocks appearing all over. Even I picked up a few I liked. We went there two different days and I got the chance to marker sketch as well. If we had been staying longer we would have ventured into some of the parks nearby to paint and do photos.

We plan to come back to the area next fall for a longer stay. Utah is filled with amazing state and national parks. Just the scenic drives alone are worth it.
