Camping at Dirty Devil

Added by Wendy Lessig 1 year ago

Camping at the Dirty Devil airstrip is an amazing experience. Since it is on a shelf within a canyon, the red rock cliffs are majestic in the dawn and sunset light. The dark skies make for brilliant stargazing. Beware of plentiful cactus and thorns when choosing a spot to pitch your tent.
