Edge of the Cedars State Park

Chacoan Great House, Edge of the Cedars State Park

In addition to Arches and Canyonlands National Parks I visited several interesting state parks on my recent trip to Utah. My favorite type of driving trip includes opening a (paper) map and simply exploring.

Edge of the Cedars State Park is in southern Utah and worth a stop if you find yourself in the area. I wrote a guest article about this park for my brother’s ceramics-focused blog: JTWceramics.com He covers everything ceramics from contemporary artists to archeological finds.

Housed in a very attractive building, the museum has a nice collection of historic artifacts, including some impressive ceramics, turkey feather blankets, historic tools, and a Chacoan Great House and Kiva at the site.
