Utah's Dark Skies and Red Rocks by RV

Day 3 - Cedar Breaks Hidden within the mountains above Cedar City is the incredible geology of Cedar Breaks National Monument. Cedar Breaks’ majestic, naturally formed amphitheatre is a three-mile-long cirque made up of eroding limestone. The monument sits entirely above 10,000 feet. The area is home to great hiking trails and pristine night skies that have earned the area a Dark Sky Parks certification.
Day 5 - Kodachrome Basin Head via Bryce Canyon National Park to the stunning Kodachrome Basin State Park. 67 monolithic stone spires, accentuate multihued sandstone layers that reveal 180 million years of geologic time. Pillars shaded red and pink are only the start to the greatness of Kodachrome. Due to the geographical remoteness the Milky Way can be seen by the naked eye.  
Day 6 - Capitol Reef This park has long been labelled one of Utah's best-kept secrets. It offers a myriad of slot canyons which are great for hiking, high Navajo sandstone domes with huge red rock cliffs amazing photo opportunities and the night sky viewing is incredible. The National Park service offer regular night sky viewing programmes and have a host of astronomical information available for visitors. 
Day 8 - Natural Bridges Here three natural bridges have been formed by meandering streams slowly cutting through the canyon walls. At night time the area has one of the darkest night skies in the country, which offers some fantastic stargazing.
Day 9 - Canyonlands Endless deep canyons, towering mesas, pinnacles, cliffs, and spires stretching across 527 square miles of Canyonlands National Park, which was formed by the currents and tributaries of Utah's Green and Colorado rivers. Canyonlands is home to many different types of travel experiences, including hikes through the Needles district.
Day 11 – Jordanelle Nestled in the rolling mountains to the east of Salt Lake City sits Jordanelle State Park and the beautiful Jordanelle Reservoir, popular with water lovers.
