The time I went, it was like entering a whole different ecosystem from the more normal desert of the area. The cliff walls start small, but as you enter, the foliage begins to disappear and the walls get enormous. It's very quiet, colorful, and extremely beautiful. Wanting to get away from the crowds on Wall Street without going all the way to Canyonlands? This is a great place. Looking back into the canyon you can see Bootleg tower. Behind that and up the canyon is Christine's way Buff Saab - haven't climbed it yet, but it's supposed to be one of the premier 5.9 cracks in the area.
Day Canyon is 13 miles down Potash Road on the right. The canyon is visible only for a moment when driving. Park on the river side of the road, cross the road, leap the RR tracks, hop over, through, or around a cow gate and follow the trail.

Anyone interested in doing "saab" or "datsun" needs to make sure they hike to the far right side before heading up. There is no path up the left side. Just a mess of rocks and sand.
