Druid Arch, Canyonlands National Park, Utah. From US 191 take Utah 211 west to the Needles. The paved road continues into the park. Entrance fees and camping fees are charged. Water is available spring through fall.
The Texas Hill Country has much to offer. Westcave Preserve is a great example of this. Just past Hamilton Pool only 27 miles from downtown Austin, this lush hidden gem turns green in the spring with ferns and cypress. The steps in this Westcave Preserve image lead up to an outlook that rests behind the 40 foot waterfall (more of a trickle on most occassions). Still, it is cool and green - a nice break on a hot Texas summer day.
