CRYPTOBIOTIC SOIL - on the approach hikes avoid the dark crusty soil - it's a living organism.
From Moab, drive 15.5 miles east along UT128 then turn south into Castle Valley Road. Follow this for ~4.5 miles and look for a dirt road on the left that leads for 50 yards into a parking lots with toilets, information board and camping spots.
