Kanab Sand Caves

These beautiful light-filled caves, also known as Moqui Caverns, were used to harvest sand for glass production in the 1970s.

From the Panguitch Barn, where we stayed when at Bryce Canyon, we drive south via Kanab.
Just a km after the Moqui tourist trap, there’s a shoulder parking and the ‘path’ starts on the opposite side of the road.
Just a 10 m in elevation hike and 100 m on the ledge, then the caves open before you.
It’s man made, but wind and weather certainly helped. Some of the windows feature sheer drop offs.
This would have been a luxury hideout in ancient times.
Beautiful sandstone banding along the ledge.
Off we go again, Page is our next stop!
