If you've seen some of the big rock formations in Utah and Arizona you might not think much of this pretty little area as it is rather small (easy to walk through quickly). However, it is a beautiful little spot nonetheless. Great to get some gorgeous pictures of all the differently colored rocks or to walk on some easy trails... 更多
This place is awesome! Easy trails, beautiful scenery! Well worth the trip! I recommend you spend at least five hours here!
Was a very scenic hike through all the formations. I was astounded by all the people climbing up on the formations though. Do they not realize they are damaging things that took thousands of years to create???
Having read a short travel article in our local paper, my elderly dad and I decided to check this place out.

But, despite the wet feet, it was fascinating to see the sediment carried down from the colored rock/clay formations -... 更多
My daughter took us out to the Paint Mines on a cool breezy morning. As we pulled into the parking lot I was thinking that this was going to be a bust. Nothing but the prarie. Boy was I wrong. After walking up a short trail we entered the formations. Wow. So many beautiful colors and formations. Well worth the... 更多
