Rest Area| Thunder Mountain Rest Area Along Scenic Byway 12

We stopped in Panguitch, Utah, to grab sandwiches for lunch, and then headed back towards Highway 12 to stop and eat it. The dogs ran around for a bit while we stretched our legs. They also got to meet some horses, probably resting between horseback riding trips.
