The Abajo Mountains are what gives life to this region! You can drive the Abajo loop from your cabin to the town of Monticello. This road will take you through spectacular scenery. You can drive or hike to elevations over 11,000 feet, where you can view the Colorado Plateau in all directions. See Canyonlands to the north and the San Juan Mountains of Colorado to the east. This road will also connect you to the Dark Canyon Wilderness area, named the first wilderness area on the Colorado Plateau. The drive is a must-see when you are visiting San Juan County! http://www.go-utah.com/utah/dark-canyon/wilderness.html
