Back from our first time visit of Utah. What a gorgeous state. We flew in to St George in the SW corner, rented a car, and headed NE for 10 days visiting Zion Nat’l Park, Bryce Canyon NP, Capital Reef NP, Canyonlands NP, and Arches NP, then drove to Grand Junction CO and flew home.
The NP’s are all beautiful in their own way and all are a hikers paradise.
Scenic Hwy 12 between Bryce and Capital Reef is like a freaking thrill ride. Lots of hairpin curves hanging on the wall of a canyon. When we finished it my hands were stuck to the steering wheel. I must have been gripping it that tight without realizing it.
Zion has a slick way of moving people around. Everyone parks by the gate and boards a free shuttle bus. The shuttle has 9 stops for hopping off or on. They come by every 5-10 minutes so you never wait long. What a great idea to eliminate congestion.
Moab sucks. It seems to be a haven for ATV’s and dirt bikers.
