Wind Cave, Logan Canyon, Utah

Posted on

Well, It’s good to be in shorts again.

We camped for a night in Logan Canyon and found a potential hike in the Utah DeLorme Atlas.  Wind Cave.

A Note About Navigation:

For general day to day navigation when driving we use a Garmin Nuvi 550 GPS named Lois.  Lois is pretty good in civilized areas, and great in the cities, but when we head for the outback we go to the paper maps.

For the less civilized areas in each state we use the DeLorme Atlas and Gazatteer.  The Delorme atlases are incredibly detailed and in addition to the maps contain information on hikes, bike trails, scenic drives, and points of interest including unique natural features, National Parks, Recreation areas, Public Lands, boat launches, and campgrounds.  Many of the great finds on our trips come from the DeLorme Atlases.

The hike to wind cave, about 2 miles, was pleasantly steep, enough for a good cool morning workout, with lots of great views of Logan Canyon.

The cave is above us, right there in the middle of the picture.

We could see the cave as we approached.  Wind Cave is actually a series of interconnected arches that form a shallow cave.

Looking at Logan Canyon from Wind Cave.

I am continually amazed at the stuff we find all over the country.

  1. Hi Ted,

    You two sure seem to find some beautiful parts of this great country of ours. Some really great shots of the Logan Canyon area. Gotta love it. Although the really great part is sharing with others so we can at least have a little taste of what’s there. (And put it on our “list”.)
    Best, Jim.

  2. The Wind Cave site looks like a perfect place to do a bit of archaeology. Imagine there are some stone tools buried in the dirt there somewhere…
