San Rafael River Canyon
"The Wedge Overlook"
San Rafael River Canyon with Windowblind Butte in the distance


The Price Field Office is located in the midsection of Utah--the gateway to the red-rock country of the San Rafael Swell. The swell as been described as the jagged remains of a dinosaur backbone, an exposed sandstone coral reef, and a stone saw blade.

No matter how you describe this place, it is a desolate but fascinating country. Traveling east, you’ll find the Green River, a premiere river trip in Utah’s deepest canyon that runs through Desolation and Gray Canyons.

Nine-Mile Canyon just west of the Green River is a major representative area of the prehistoric Fremont Culture where one can see panels of rock art and, if you look closely, some well-hidden storage bins.
