Boulder, Utah, Scenic Byway 12, Red Rock


Scenic Byway 12 and the Burr Trail Scenic Backway meet at this town with incredible views of monuments, parks, and recreation areas, all part of the American West.

Boulder, Utah

Until the 1940s, residents of this remote town of Boulder received their mail by mule. Although Boulder remains small and quiet, its location on Scenic Byway 12, All-American Road, and its status as a gateway to the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument, has brought more visitors and attractions to the town. Worth the trip alone, Boulder's Anasazi State Park and Museum marks the site of an Anasazi village that predates AD 1200.
