After the dam tour we briefly checked out the marina but didn’t stay long since the restaurant wasn’t open so we headed east to the Dutch John Resort for a nice sit down lunch before heading west to the Red Canyon Overlook. Wow! What incredible views. The visitor center is a wealth of information on the history of the area but what took our breath away was the amazing views! From inside the visitor center you can look out the huge plate glass windows at the canyon but even more impressive is the short loop walk out to the canyon’s edge. We were grateful for some stout fencing that allowed us to get close to the edge safely. We lingered a while just drinking in the beauty. There’s great camping in the area and we’d enjoy making this a destination for a longer stay something when the weather is a little cooler.
