What's the name of this area?
From here one can make a most interesting hike through the canyon below, especially when there is shuttle car at the other end .

Reminds me of passing over the north side of the Salmon outside Capitol Reef, but the mountains in the background don't line up as far as I can tell.

Sort of reminds me of Mill Creek, but I can't match up any of the features to the sat imagery.

Your memory did a very good job, now tell me what's the name of the place at the top!

Udink deserves at least half the credit on that one! There are riches in that canyon, was that your focus?

I am always on the look out for cool dunes. Happy to find these. Call this shallow canyon and dune by the tourist feature at its terminous, or get in the area.

I'mma say if they're not named on the USGS map (as opposed to, say, a Kelsey or Allen book?), they're not named. But, let's guess Horsethief Trail? And if that's correct, did you see the petroglyphs on the boulder to the west?
