After Ogden we wanted to travel toward Moab. On the way we researched a place to stop and discovered Wellington UT and Nine Mile Canyon. About 24 miles north of US6/191 on Nine Mile Canyon Road is Nine Mile Ranch, the only campground in the area. The rancher and his wife offer a basic parking spot with available water, flush toilets and a dump station. There is room for only 3 large RVs.
Nine Mile Canyon is known as the world’s longest art gallery. There are 40 miles of rock art from Archaic, Fremont and Ute people who have been traveling this canyon for hundreds perhaps thousands of years. Great accessible sites are all along the road winding through the canyon. The skill of the rock artists is remarkable. It’s amazing that its not a national or state park.Utah is a state with an abundance of natural beauty. Nine Mile Canyon is another example of under the radar sites that we enjoy discovering. It is a true joy of the RV lifestyle that we have the time to dig down and find these treasures.
