Grand Staircase/Escalante National Monument: Take the kids to the Devil’s Garden

Devil’s Garden, about 14 miles down the Hole in the Rock Road outside Escalante, is another must visit place if you are passing through.  Not really a hike, more of an adventure/explore, this is like a natural playground for kids of all sizes.  The hoodoos are weathered into separate spires, and are gentle enough to allow climbing on, around, and through arches, tunnels and holes through the rock.

Allow plenty of play time, but unless you are following your kids closely, hang whistles around their necks.  That way, if they get turned around, they will have a way to alert you to their location.

Coming up soon:  Upper and Lower Calf Creek Falls and Peekaboo and Spooky Slot Canyons (for kids.)  Also, how to take time to summer school yourself (for Mom.)  Hope you are planning a great weekend!  Leave me a comment about your plans!
