Aside from that, it’s extremely hot in the summer and is a little off the beaten path so not too many people venture out to the Monument. The first thing you’ll notice is Soda Lake, a big salt patch in the middle of the plain. The other main thing to see there is Painted Rock, which is home to world-famous petroglyphs.
We walked about 1.5 miles to the rock in over 100 °F and saw thousands of Checkered White butterflies.
If I have to give you one piece of advice it would be to come during the winter and the spring seasons to enjoy cooler temperatures and see more of the beautiful wildflowers.
