Whilst it isn’t particularly long, what it packs in during
those miles will take your breath away. It is home to Bryce Canyon and Capitol
Reef National Parks, Escalante Petrified Forest and Kodachrome Basin State
Parks, Glen Canyon National Recreation Area, Grand Staircase-Escalante National
Monument and finally, the 1.8 million-acre Dixie National Forest. All that in
Let’s look at some of those locations mentioned in more
Bryce Canyon National Park:
Famous the world over for its ‘Hoodoos’ (with the largest
concentration anywhere in earth) Bryce isn’t a single canyon, but a series of
natural amphitheatres carved into the edge of a high plateau. The park is full
of hiking trails that allow you to enjoy this geological wonder and take all
those Instagram photos that your friends and family are sure to be jealous about.
Probably the least well known of Utah’s ‘Mighty Five’
National Parks, but this hidden treasure is certainly worth your time and
exploration. Located deep in Utah’s red rock country, there are plenty of
canyons, cliffs and natural bridges to get that awesome selfie. It is also
recognised as an International Dark Sky Park which means on a clear evening the
sky will be lit up from the heavens with millions of stars that will take your
Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument:
If your plan is to really get away from it all, this place
has to be on your list. An area the size of Delaware this rugged paradise will
let you explore the plateaus and canyons until your hearts content. One of the
last places in the lower 48 states to be mapped, you won’t struggle to take
that unique photo to share with your followers on Instagram.
Glen Canyon National Recreation Area:
The main feature of this magical place is the 200-mile-long
Lake Powell that offers you all the water-based activities you could possibly
want. For those once in a lifetime photos, hike Coyote Gulch, a 13-mile side
canyon with sandstone natural bridges, arches and streambeds.
