Fodor's Review

If you're headed south from Canyonlands and have an interest in ancestral Puebloan culture, a visit to this monument is a must. Park rangers strongly advise following printed maps and signs from Route 191 near Blanding, Utah, or County Road G from Cortez, Colorado. GPS is not reliable here. Once you get there, you'll find unusual tower structures (which may have been used for astronomical observation) and ancient dwellings.
