"Delta, Utah - Gateway to Great Basin National Park" Delta by rids

Delta Travel Guide: 5 reviews and 5 photos

Delta is the eastern gateway to one of the newest national parks, Great Basin National Park. Take Highway 50/6 (the Loneliest Road in America) west for 150 miles through scenic beauty very few have encountered. Along the way, in February and March large flocks of Snow Geese can be seen gathered at Sevier Dry Lake. Although shown on maps as a dry lake, the floods of 1983 left the lake as the second largest lake in Utah.

(800) 864-0345. Stop by and purchase, for a nominal price, some Trilobite pins. Trilobites are fossils from the Cambrian period (approx. 570 million years) found west of Delta.

    I'd just like to say that the restaurant that you are referring to is no longer that, but a Mexican food restaurant. I haven't been there for about a year, but it's unlikely that they've changed it again.
