We first saw large sand dunes and then what looked like a dried lake bed. Checking our AAA tour book we learned that we were at the base of Abert Rim, one of the highest exposed fault scarps (steep slopes) in North America. The 2000-foot-high escarpment is great for hang gliding.
After we had parked our rig and got settled for the night, I walked the perimeter of the park. Found the golf course and the restaurant which was closed for the day. No activity anywhere, however. I still wondered if the "resort" part of this park was a thing of the past. But no, as I was again hiking around the park the next morning, a parade of golf carts passed me heading to the links.
