Potash Road In Moab, Utah
The Scenic Drive on Potash Road (Utah State Highway 279) From Moab To Jug Handle Arch
|Moab, Utah. What a special place.
Utah State Highway 279, known as Potash Road, was voted one of the most scenic drives in America. On my recent visit to
I drove on Potash Road (pronounced POT-ash), and below are my photos.
This section is popular for climbing and is known as "Wall Street."

|Jug Handle Arch
The goal of this drive was to see Jug Handle Arch, an arch outside the national parks. I had already visited
Wilson Arch and Looking Glass Rock,
and while Jug Handle Arch wasn't as spectacular, it was worth visiting. From here, I was only three miles from Potash, but I decided to turn back to Moab.
You can see my photos and video of this arch here:

This time, the grand wall was on my left.
||It reminds me of the scenery in the Road Runner and Wile E. Coyote cartoons. :)
