Hole-in-the-Rock Road is a dirt track that runs 55 miles from the town of Escalante, Utah to the edge of a cliff. It follows the route of 1879 Mormon pioneers. When they reached the cliff, they lowered their wagons and mules to the Colorado River with ropes through a cleft. A network of canyons leading to the Escalante River is accessible east of the road. The slickrock canyons contrast with the dry plateau above. Water flows everywhere with abundant plant life. The last image shows the view of Lake Powell from Hole in the Rock.
