Rock Garden

Unkar Delta — The large, flats along Unkar Creek by the mouth. Ruins have been excavated by archeologists upriver and inland on the south.

Routes — This is a difficult place to get to. Connecting routes downriver go through Birdfoot Canyon. The next canyon upriver is Basalt by way of Furnace Flats. See also notes on the North Rim Passage trip. Other accesses in upper Unkar connect with Vishnu Canyon and Lava Canyon.
