We did a half day 8 am trip. It was great! Our guide, Blaine, showed us Native American pictographs, beautiful scenery, with great views and plenty of time to take photos. He was knowledgeable about wildlife, geology, plants, and native cultures. He drove us to the lower part of Canyon Lands, and then up, up, up! We felt safe all the way with him driving in a challenging terrain. I highly recommend this trip.

Amazing beauty!!! Good guide!! Loved the back road experience. Only thing is instead of just going up & back the same way.... maybe taking some kind of loop so we can see more. It was truly breathtaking!
