Recently en route for a fishing trip to Otter Creek and Koosharem Reservoir, I pulled into Kingston Canyon in the middle of Utah for a good stretch. As I walked around the site’s interpretive panels, I was drawn into the artistic displays, depicting travelers of long ago who ventured along the Old Spanish Trail via horseback and mule.
There was something so delightful about “happening” upon a unique, little gem like Kingston Canyon that all of my senses were refreshed - from the interpretive panels to the cool breeze that drifted through the canyon to the Sevier River rushing along its course under a sturdy, rustic bridge.
Managed by the BLM Richfield Office, this sweet, quiet retreat is a truly refreshing desert oasis. For more information about this and other public lands managed by the BLM Richfield Field Office visit: http://www.blm.gov/ut/st/en/fo/richfield/recreation_.html
