    Johnson Canyon is one of the trails within the park that is only open seasonally. Usually this trail is closed annually from March 15 to September 14. An easy, two miles trail, with some rocky slopes and steps. This trail winds through ancient lava flows and red sandstone rocks to a sheltered canyon, and an arch spanning 200 feet, which can can be seen high up on one of the red rock walls.

    Sand Dunes

    There is plenty of sand in the canyon. A finely textured, soft coral colored sand. At one point it has gathered into dunes. It is a great place for the kids to play. Not in the hot summer time though then the sand is too hot to touch.
    There is a picnic area where we ate breakfast. This area is one reason why I love picnics. It allows you to stop and just enjoy for a short time.

    This short trail takes you past a small arch along a sandstone cliff, past tangles of mesquite and creosote to a panel of names that some pioneers made.

    It is a nice desert stroll. Look for animal trails, wildflowers and listen for bird calls.

    Lava caves

    lava caves

    These caves were formed from liquid lava. They are pretty deep on the inside. Unfortunately, we weren't allowed to go in, but we were told that exploring these lava caves is not for amateurs.

    If you make a trip in the summer months you have to take the gondola to the top of the mountain. It is a remarkable view especially if there is still snow.
