Visit Utah’s 5 National Parks
Utah has five National Parks, each with their own individuality and natural beauty, but if you had to choose, which would you visit? Zion National Park is popular with hikers and wildlife enthusiasts. Home to a winding river and four life zones containing desert, forests, riparian and woodland, it captivates nature lovers with diverse landscapes, plant, bird and wildlife species.
Bryce Canyon, by contrast, is akin to standing on a barren desert-like planet. The other-worldly terrain is packed with towering geological rock formations named hoodoos – a result of stream and frost erosion over centuries.
If you seek a place to stargaze you can’t fail to be impressed at Arches National Park. A wonderland of red rock, meandering trails and over 2000 natural stone arches, it’s a unique location from which to view Northern Hemisphere constellations thanks to low light pollution.
Alternatively, delve into the lives of indigenous nomads following petroglyph rock trails of Capitol Reef National Park or navigate the rapids at Cataract Canyon on a white-water rafting adventure in Canyonlands.
