Overview

The Grand Canyon - Parashant region in the Arizona Strip is still one of the most remote places in the United States. The monument’s name derives from an early translation of a Paiute family name “Parashonts,” meaning “elk or large deer standing in water.” While traveling through this majestic landscape you'll experience what remote really feels like, you can explore for days and possibly never run into another vehicle. CR 101 is the easiest and main route that travels north-south from Nevada to Utah. Because of the remoteness of the region the wildlife is abundant. You can expect to see golden eagles, bald eagles, prairie hawks, elk and deer, just to name a few.
