The Fins - Ernies Country

Ernies Country Trip Report
As the evening sun dips below the horizon, the enormous fins of Ernies Country are seen breaking the skyline. The Henry Mountains, rising 11,000 feet from the tableland, paint a deep blue backdrop here in The Maze. This vast, uninhabited 30 square mile sandstone puzzle has been described as the most inhospitable land in Utah. Although this section of the Canyonlands National Park is quite remote, a web of rugged 4 wheel drive tracks make it possible for the adventurous to access this region marked by steep canyons, dry washes, gullies, and ancient granaries.
