The Escalante River Basin - Page 3

Hell's Backbone is located at the high end of the drainage basin, in the Box-Death Hollow Wilderness. The area offers mountain camping, windy gorges, and some challenging back-packing.

Hell's Backbone - From the Hell's Backbone bridge there is an impressive view down the gorge of Death Hollow.
Death Hollow - a view down Death Hollow toward the lower Escalante Basin; the Straight Cliffs are visible in the distance.
Posy Lake Overlook - A half-mile walk up a steep trail brings you to this beautiful view over Posy Lake in the Escalante Mountains.

The Hell's Backbone Road is the long route between the towns of Escalante and Boulder, but is well worth the trouble.
