Carved into the eastern slope of the Tushar mountains of south-central Utah, rise the walls of Bullion Canyon. Surrounding mountain peaks soar more than 12,000 feet above sea level. Pine Creek descends through the gorge, losing more than 2,000 feet of elevation until it merges with the Seview River about four miles west of the canyon.
