After dinner, we hopped in the car and headed back up UT 128 along the Colorado River. We were on a mission: to catch sunset at the Fisher Towers where there is a 3.9-mile trail that gets moderate traffic. It’s an out and back trail that is easy to follow, past rock art and enormous red sandstone pinnacles. The last major tower at the 1.5-mile mark is called The Titan. The trail then heads out onto a spectacular ridge with majestic views of the towers.
We drove about twenty miles on UT 128 and then headed up the two-mile dusty gravel road and arrived right on time, just as the sun was beginning to set and the towers were being day-glowed in red light. It was absolutely magical cathedral light on a rocky tapestry that literally throbbed with color.
