Description: Enjoy a leisurely picnic lunch beside a geological wonder with Geologist Colter Davis, instructor for the University of Utah. Cold non-alcoholic beverages will be provided but bring your own lunch. 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.
