Wellington is a small town six miles southwest of Price. It was settled in 1878 by 13 pioneer families, and is named named for Justus Wellington Seeley Jr who served in the Emery County Court.
We had to pass through Wellington to reach Nine Mile Canyon where we were able to see these wonderful petroglyphs. These are the petroglyphs that adorn, along the top, Utah's newest license plate. The canyon's name was misleading though, because we drove more than nine miles along that canyon. Or so it seemed to us.
