Beautiful coloration around the base of the geyser to the green river. There were a couple of people there that had been waiting for 2 days for an eruption.

Absolutely awesome drive. We drove all the way to I-70 and it was gorgeous. Road was a little slick in the final descent towards the Swinging Bridge but we made it through okay. All in all this is an absolutely amazing drive with very few people in the way!!

Next to the river. Pretty cool. Had about a 4 foot eruption.

We found Crystal Geyser after looking for a place to stay on a road trip. Just before sunset, the drive toward the geyser felt like a journey on a different planet. Once at the geyser, the environment was very serene and the orange travertine gave a warm dimension to the moment. Drive with caution since the road is really rough and rocky. I was able to pull it off with a two-door Civic.

This area is mostly isolated, with the exception of people possibly driving by. Also a nice place to camp, if the weather is clear and dry. Overnight, I felt like a critter was sniffing around the tent, so keep in mind that may be possible. The geyser itself merely gurgled until the next morning before heading to Moab. It erupted for over half an hour.

If you're looking for a place to boondock and don't mind the drive, this site is great.

This drive was fantastic! The variety of rock formations, colors and vast scenery are well worth the drive. Roads are well maintained but we could see deeper tracks from when it was muddy. We traveled this trail to the wedge overlook which is highly recommended! There are several other sightseeing attractions along this road.

Was with the Northern Utah ATV club and this was one of the trails we rode. Got to walk through this cabin and cool off for a minute.

As many would agree there is some amazing rock art! The large groups of 4 wheelers gets old when they don't pull over but decide to take up the whole road. But don't let that ruin your day!

One of the better rock art sites in the San Rafael Swell. My first time here was in 2005.

We were visiting the Buckhorn Wash Pictographs, and decided to go back to Moab on a different route. We drove up to the Green River Cutoff Road, and followed it to HWY 6. It had rained the day before, and the road was still quite muddy. The farther we went, the muddier it got. We made it out, and had to stop in Green River to wash off some of the mud on our Jeep. In dry weather, this would be an easy drive.

Swasey's Cabin is very easy to get to, even in a passenger car. The graded road is a little rub-boarded at times, but not really that bad. We were there in 2005, and again in 2011.
