Red Sandstone towering 6805 feet:

Along Utah Highway 95, the bicentennial highway assembled in 1976, is a close feature resembling a chair. There is a state highway sign pointing out this feature, and also the Cheesebox farther east. Jacob Adams was a cattleman in the area who lost his life crossing the White Creek in the area of White Canyon. The highway follows the canyon.

Getting there:

Utah highway 95 starting in Hanksville passes the Henry Mountains and crosses the Colorado River at the Hite Crossing Bridge. About 12 miles southeast of the bridge is Jacobs Chair, looking proportional and impressive. About 12 miles later is the Cheesebox and sign, but this landmark is seen quite a time before and after that. Then comes along even more impressive Bears Ears, which is another report.
