Highlights of Southern Utah - Sept 24 - Oct 4, 2010

Join us as we hike the National Parks in southern Utah. We will start off by arriving in Las Vegas. With a mini-van, we will all drive to Zion for a few days. Then, we are off to Bryce, then Capitol Reef National Park, Arches National Park and then our last stop will be Canyonlands National Park. On our way back to Vegas, we will probably hike the incredible slot canyons; Spooky and Peek-a-boo, at the Escalante National Monument. What a great trip, to see Utah, especially if you have never seen the beauty or never hiked there before!

Our hikes will be 5-10 miles and elevation will be less than 2000'. Length depends on time factor and taking the best of what's available - for instance, some days we may do two short hikes. On travel days, we do plan to fit in a hike of some duration, but it may not be a long one. Geography constraints force us to spend driving from park to park, but we fully
intend to make efficient use of our time so we can see and do as much as possible. The end of our trip involves driving back to Las Vegas. If you haven't been to the parks in Utah, you will love this trip, because you will get a snapshot of the entire area!

Planned Vacations, What a Concept !

Sure, there are maps and tour guides and the Chamber of Commerce, but wouldn't it be nice if we had trips already planned and we knew what we wanted to do at those locations by others recommendations. I have been leading vacation trips with OutsideNE and the Appalachian Mountain Club for over ten years.
