Catstair Canyon Paria Utah Stacked Cars to Make Freeway in 360 Degrees



PARIA UTAH STACKED CARS USED TO MAKE FREEWAY IN SLOT CANYON


Just past the House Rock Valley Road along highway 89, there is a cool slot canyon that they used cars from the 1960's to fill in the gap in the highway.  They stacked the cars, then covered it with dirt, then built the highway on top.  If you look at the Google Earth image below, you can see the cars sticking out on the side of the road.  Such a funny yet clever thing to do.  You can't say people from Utah are not resourceful.  I am sure back in the day this was built these were all broken cars that had there day, but I stood looking at this fun collection of 1960 automobiles, and kinda wanted to sneak one of them out and fix it up for me. :)

Crazy to head down into a slot canyon and turn a corner and see a wall of stacked automobiles. Sometimes we think we are old and not very useful in life, but just like these cars being crucial for tons of people who drive this road daily, we ALL have a purpose and ways the Lord wants to use us to bless those around us. Just ask how the Lord wants your help, and he will let you know.

Google gave me a 360 video camera, but I can no longer embed images from the trails I make with it, and frankly I am not that pleased with the quality of the pictures, for they have to grab it from the video.  Needless to say, you have to click on the link above to walk through the area.  

Below I looked at the top of the stack of cars, and there is a sign.  When I zoomed in, the sign says Trucks Enter Here.  So funny that they stuck that sign in the midst of this pile of cars.

ROCK FORMATIONS AROUND CATSTAIR CANYON PARIA UTAH

This area is a little tricky, for if you have someone behind you, you can't turn in, for it will cause an accident, so try to be strategic and get people to pass you before you get here.  Here is a dropped pin of the location. 

As I came from the parking lot and dropped into the wash, I first turned right just to see if the slot canyon that direction was cool.  it was pretty, but it dead ended to this fairly quickly. 

Catstair Canyon Paria Utah Pillars

So I headed to the left, and there was lots of cool rock structures.  There was pillars, and cool step like formations, then the neat "Wave Like" Rock that people come from all over to see. 



Here is another link to information about this area.
