Exploring Southern Utah: The Vortex

Take a break this afternoon for some Southern Utah daydreams with this fun read on The Vortex in the Red Mountain Wilderness.


The Vortex
If you go: Drive up SR-18 towards Dammeron Valley. About 3 miles after the Red Mountain Trailhead sign, you need to turn left onto the road for Sand Cove Reservoir. There will be a sign marking the turn. Drive past the upper reservoir, and there will be a parking area facing a large sandstone block. The road is dirt but in good condition, and unless it gets muddy, you do not need four-wheel drive or high clearance.
