Time: -

Description: Enjoy a leisurely picnic lunch beside a geological wonder with Geologist Colter Davis, Department of Geosciences, Utah State University. Cold non-alcoholic beverages will be provided but bring your own lunch and a folding chair if desired. This event takes place 23 miles east of Kanab at the edge of a chasm in the limestone formations of Buckskin Mountain, known as Eagle Sink. 

Sinks are topographical depressions formed when underlying limestone bedrock is dissolved by groundwater. Learn more about how this process occurs. Explore the area on foot after lunch while enjoying panoramic views of the multi-colored cliffs and formations of the Grand Staircase. 4WD vehicle required, carpooling available.

Location: Eagle Sink

Directions: Gather at the Earthfest Information Table, Kane County Office of Tourism, 78 South 100 East, Kanab, at 11:30 AM to carpool, or from Kanab, drive approximately 21 miles East on US Hwy 89 toward Page, AZ. After mile post 43, turn right, and re-connect with the group at the Great Western Trail Parking Area. Allow 30 minutes drive time from Kanab. Travel in convoy from there to the site.
