Although we had previously visited California, with majestic Yosemite, and Florida with the fascinating Everglades, it was here that I really came to appreciate the US National Park system. Maybe that’s not so surprising – we visited five National Parks in Utah alone, in addition to those already seen in Arizona, as well as several State Parks and similar facilities.
Anyone who shares my fondness for desert landscapes, wide open spaces and big, big skies will love Utah. The red rock formations in Bryce Canyon and Arches, the sweeping vistas of Canyonlands and the more intimate spaces of Zion are scenery enough for anyone. Add Monument Valley’s classic Western backdrops, the unreal “desert meets blue water” world of Lake Powell, and some touches of human history both ancient (Anasazi) and more recent (Mormon settlers), and you have a potent mixture that will satisfy any traveller seeking the quintessential US road trip experience.
As with all the pages I have made from this trip, my memory is a little hazy on some details and my diary notes incomplete in places. I have done my best to research the tips and hope that everything is accurate and that factual information is up-to-date, but I apologise if this is not the case. My main intention here is to record a special holiday and share my impressions of this spectacular state.
