]Breakfast & Lunch High 65° Low 40° Red Cliffs Lodge
Moab - Arches - Canyonlands - Dead Horse Point - Moab
Your journey through the otherworldly oases of two national parks begins today. Explore and discover the geological nuances of the world’s largest concentration of natural sandstone arches on a hike* at Arches National Park. At the heart of the Colorado Plateau, Canyonlands National Park is a sublime and solitary wilderness of rock; a color wheel of canyons, mesas, buttes, and arches that work together to create Utah’s largest national park. Close by, in the Island in the Sky District, the canyons of the Green and Colorado rivers are dreamily showcased. Your journey through these national parks ends today atop the sheer sandstone cliffs of Dead Horse Point State Park. Legend says the point was used as a corral for wild mustangs that roamed the mesa top.

Breakfast High 54° Low 23° Best Western Plus Bryce Canyon Grand Hotel
Moab - Capitol Reef National Park - Bryce
Travel through the dramatic Utah desert on Utah’s Scenic Byway 24 to Capitol Reef National Park. Named in part for the Navajo Sandstone’s resemblance to the U.S. Capitol building, to stand inside its desert landscape is to find it virtually impossible to tell where the earth stops and the sky begins. Over Boulder Mountain on Scenic Byway 12, known as the Million Dollar Road, views of Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument are anything but scarce. The mountain is North America’s highest timbered plateau. Spend the night in Bryce tonight, at the gateway to Bryce Canyon National Park.

Bryce Canyon National Park - Springdale
Fairy chimneys and goblins: the hoodoos of Bryce Canyon National Park are famous. These red and orange hued rock formations – products of thousands of years of wind and water exposure – dominate the park’s landscape. Take some time this morning for an optional hike.* Consider circuiting the Navajo Loop or Queens Garden trails. Just outside of Zion National Park, Springdale offers views from its main street that are almost equally as grand as the ones inside the park.
