Utah Essential Info

Overview

For those who think the desert is just miles of barren and empty land, allow the natural wonders of Utah to prove you wrong! Make sure to snag a permit to see the Subway at Zion, walk among the hoodoos at Bryce Canyon, look up at the unique rock formations at Arches National Park, Canyonlands, see red at Capitol Reef, or try some extreme water sports at Lake Powell. The Utah desert is anything but deserted!
