We were only in Wabaja for a few hours and were quite lost fro our next destination. Spoke to a girl in the i-SITE who was very helpful and gave us some good advice. No need to struggle when there is an i-SITE avout.

We wanted to go hiking for a few hours, and the walk to Rocky Mountain was thoughtfully suggested. Wonderful day out.
