Cedar Breaks National Monument

Point Supreme | Chessman Overlook

2,000 feet deep
3 miles in diameter
Decending from the 10,000'+ tall Markagunt Plateau
Iron and Manganese
Indians called it the" Circle of Painted Cliffs"
In 1933 Cedar Breaks National Monument was established

We car camped at the Chessman Ridge Overlook, I was hoping that the sun would come out in the morning, this time it did. The park was amazing, alot like Bryce Canyon, but much more colorful. It looks like an earlier version of Bryce.
