Add some Utah hiking to your eclipse watching

Ever heard of the small town of Kanarraville, Utah?

Astrology buffs have, albeit recently. The Iron County town is calling itself the "Sweet Spot' for href="http://www.sltrib.com/sltrib/news/54027686-78/eclipse-view-moon-utah.html.csp?page=1" target="_blank">the eclipse arriving Sunday.

People with telescopes and just eye protection will park along Spring Creek Road for the event.

I hiked outside Kanarraville in 2010. If you want to spend some extra time outdoors before or after the eclipse, href="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/cms/sites/sltrib/Outdoors/hikes.csp?hike=425" target="_blank">go to Spring Creek Canyon.

Spring Creek Canyon is a wilderness area. There are gray and redrock cliffs and pinyon and juniper woodlands.

I'll warn you I don't know whether the canyon is a good place to view the eclipse. There are cliffs on both sides of the canyon. Plus, no vehicles are allowed into the canyon. You'll have to lug your telescope and anything else you need to watch.
