One of my favorite overnight stopping places on the way to other locations in Utah is the Salt Valley near Arches National Park. In this case, I was on my way to St. George, Utah.

I’ve said before that southern Utah may as well be on another planet.
There was a lot of hazy smoke in the air from forest fires to the north and northwest. It was more apparent to the west.
I camp outside of Arches on this wide rock ledge overlooking the valley. I usually sleep over on the right, near the juniper.
