Some places don’t seem like they are named proper. Fantasy Canyon is one of them.
It is located up in northeastern Utah near Vernal.
It’s at the edge of a great big working oil and gas field all lit up at night that you have to drive through to get there. It is a tiny little no-man’s land between the badlands above and the valley floor below.
There are pump jacks in the neighborhood and a dilapidated drilling rig sits nearby it’s dreary grey formations.
If it’s a canyon at all, it’s a mini-canyon. It can’t be more than 50 feet deep and a quarter mile long. I doesn’t qualify as a slot canyon.
A round resting bench sits smack dab in the middle.
Its one of those little places its name you’ll have to judge for yourself.
