Ok, today we are moving into the Southwest region of Utah…which inadvertently has some Southeast locations mixed in, because like I mentioned in my previous Utah post, their guidebook is not overly helpful! But here it goes!
- Cedar Breaks National Monument: A natural amphitheater with stunning views.
- Bryce Canyon National Park: Beautiful park known for its stunning red rock formations.
- Glen Canyon/Lake Powell Recreation Area: This is one thing that got mixed around in regions, but this area has a little something for everyone!
- Kodachrome Basin State Park: Known for its stunning stone spires.
- Escalante Petrified Forest State Park: A chance to check out a petrified forest!
- Maple Canyon: Canyon great for climbing due to its cobblestone cliffs.
- Snow Canyon State Park: Canyon with distinctive red and white rock.
- Buckskin Gulch: The longest and deepest slot canyon in the southwest.
- Coral Pink Sand Dunes State Park: Beautiful red sand dunes.
- Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument: Fun place to hike that includes Calf Creek Falls.
- Rainbow Bridge: Another that should have made it into the southeast region, but it is the highest natural bridge.
- Zion National Park: Utah’s famed park that includes red rocks, canyons, forested areas, and waterfalls.
- Capitol Reef State Park: Known for its canyons and rock formations.
