Panguitch

I recommend the Cowboy's Smoke House for Dinner. It will give you an opportunity to wreak vengence on a cow, that probably did the same to the country-side. For breakfast, try Buffalo Java; they have an espresso machine and know how to use it.

Kanab

Junction: US Highway 89 Alternate, south to Fredonia, with access to the north rim of the Grand Canyon.

Literature Cited:
- Retallack, Gregory J., 2009.  

Near this location about 4 miles east of Kanab (access via Red Hills Road) is a paleosol collection site in the Triassic-Jurassic Moenave Formation used by Retallack in his 2009 study of greenhouse crises of the past 300 million years. Retallack used stomatal index data for fossil Ginko and related leaves as a proxy for past CO2 spikes and paleosol chemical data as proxies for temperature and humidity changes. These data show that global warming due to CO2 rise is a not a unique event in earth history and that the magnitude of the coming anthropogenic greenhouse pales in comparison with past greenhouse spikes at times of global mass extinctions.

Junction: White House - Trailhead Road

About a mile south on White House - Trailhead Road is a paleosol collection site in the Jurassic Winsor Member of the Carmel Formation used by Retallack in his 2009 study of greenhouse crises of the past 300 million years. Retallack used stomatal index data for fossil Ginko and related leaves as a proxy for past CO2 spikes and paleosol chemical data as proxies for temperature and humidity changes.
