Spend a few hours along Route 279 if you're interested in Native American rock art. Look for signs for "Indian Writings," then park in designated areas to view the petroglyphs on the cliffs. At the 18-mile marker you'll reach Jug Handle Arch. A few miles later the road turns to four-wheel drive as it passes into the Island in the Sky District. If you start late in the afternoon, the cliffs will be glowing orange as the sun sets. Allow about two hours round-trip for the drive.
Begins just north of Moab where Rte. 191 crosses Colorado River, Moab, Utah, United States
