Join us for an eye-popping, jaw-dropping, camera-stopping odyssey through Utah’s Mighty Five National Parks!
In each park, a series of walks is offered through some of the most stunning scenery and some of the most monumental geological wonders to be seen, certainly in the Southwest, even throughout the USA, and mostly likely across the globe!
One of the surprises of a journey through Utah is the remarkable scenery discovered even outside the boundaries of the famous national parks.
- Arches National Park – a 4-part walk in Arches National Park is characterized by graceful, gargantuan arches and windows carved into magnificent reddish sandstone monoliths. Walking right up to many of the formations adds an almost sacred sense of scale to the experience.
- Canyonlands National Park – with 3 additional short trails in the aptly-named ‘Island in the Sky’ section of the national park. A top-of-the-world feeling overtakes us as we walk along mesa rims, looking down 2000 feet to the canyon floor spread before us to infinity.
- Capitol Reef National Park – a memorable hike to spectacular shades of sculpted sandstone at Hickman Bridge. The abandoned, early 20th century settlement of Fruita makes this park unique among Utah’s Mighty Five. Fruit orchards offering a variety of produce are still tended by National Park Service staff.
- Bryce Canyon National Park – some of the most colorful, fantastical rock formations on a journey chock-full of incredible canyons! Marvel at captivating hoodoo formations of the Queen’s Gardens, the Cathedral, and Silent City.
- Zion National Park – another series of excellent nature trails accessed on a self-guided basis made possible by the park’s excellent shuttle system.
