Oh, and an open invitation to any GT shutterbugs who might want to come out to UT and have someone to thrash around the backroads with...

Is that in Zion? I have Grandparents that live close to the park. I should go down there and spend a week taking pictures.

Yes. The picture is from the Left Fork of Great West Canyon, known better by the name of 'The Subway'. I grew up is S. Utah and it's still one of my absolute favorite places to be.

Well, it all kind of depends on what you want to do/see and how much time you want to spend doing it....



Zion National Park is one of the coolest places on earth! You could literally spend weeks there exploring the nooks and crannies. The first picture was taken on a one day hike that you can do either top-down, or in-and-out from the bottom up. Either way you'll need a permit (hard to get, except in advance) There's also lots of other 'techincal canyons' for the prepared canyoneer...

Don't forget about Bryce Canyon NP, Arches NP, Canyonlands NP, San Rafael Swell, Grand-Staircase Escalante, Lake Powell, plus a whole bunch of other State Parks and sights to see.

A good trip would be to fly into Vegas, rent a car and drive to see Bryce Canyon NP. Then you could head up to Moab, do some kayaking on the Green/Colorado, maybe even some Escalante river. From Moab you have tons of mountain bike trails, or 4wd trails if that's your thing. Throw in some hiking in Arches and Canyonlands, then use a day or two (or three) to head down and see Zion before heading back to Vegas.


Geez, I sound like a travel council ad.... ;)

Cool,

My family has a cabin in Provo canyon on the road leading to Aspen. That is some pretty terrain.
