I had also hoped to check out what I believe to be the remains of another concrete arrow not far from Mr. Graham's monument. Unfortunately, much of Kolob Mountain is private property, and the road I needed to follow to check out the arrow was gated. If you go to Google Earth and plug in these coordinates: 37 degrees, 30 '35.98" N 113 degrees, 01' 35.60" W you'll see what I'm talking about (sorry, couldn't come up with a degree symbol). It doesn't look like much, but I imagine with freeze/thaw cycles over the last 80 years the concrete wouldn't be in too good of shape by now. I plotted a line from the arrow straight in the direction it's pointing and the line goes straight to the Parowan airport. Anyway, I guess I'll never know for sure.
Since I dislike going back the way I came I had hoped to drop off the mountain to the west into Kanarra. As I headed down the mountain I began to cross small snow drifts. Eventually they became impassible, and I decided I better turn around before I got myself into trouble.
After getting back to the intersection, I turned north to drop into the canyon east of Cedar City. These bushes are still sporting their fall colors.
After a few miles of smooth sailing I popped out above Cedar City. Nice views from up there, though it was kind of hazy.
I continued down the mountain into Cedar Canyon, east of Cedar City.
Last October there was a major landslide in Cedar Canyon. Pictures here if you're interested. I heard they had made enough progress to start letting weekend traffic pass through. I hoped to ride up and check it out, but no such luck.
