An oasis in the desert near the Vermilion Cliffs, the monument is part of the National Park Service. I was a little confused by the sign to the the Visitor Center--it's an unexpected joint effort between the NPS and the Kaibab Bank of Paiute Indians.
The Paiutes lived in the area for hundreds of years. These are examples of their dwellings, or kahns.
The museum has some cool Paiute artwork.
In 1871 Mormon pioneers built a ranch/fort, called Winsor Castle, over the springs. We went on the tour to see how the settlers lived.
Outside are replicas of stuff you'd find on an old ranch. I liked the Longhorn cattle.
