Summer Road Trip – Utah National Parks

Utah National Parks This post will summarize our summer 2016 road trip visiting all the Utah National Parks, with pictures and links to individual blog posts for more details. As well as the parks themselves, we enjoyed the drives between them, so these drives deserved their own posts. Some of the most spectacular scenery we […]

Utah National Parks – Pictures

Utah National Parks Pictures We took a lot more photos in the Utah National Parks than we could fit in the blog posts.  Here is a gallery of photos from each of the parks. Zion National Park  Bryce Canyon National Park Capitol Reef National Park Arches National Park Canyonlands National Park

Summer Road Trip – Canyonlands National Park

The last stop on our tour of Utah’s national parks was Canyonlands National Park. We did this one a little differently, deciding to book a tour instead of self-driving. Canyonlands is so vast and undeveloped, we figured we could see more with some professional help. There are a number of operators in Moab who will […]

Summer Road Trip – Moab, Utah

The next destination on our summer road trip was a little different to our previous stops in Zion, Bryce Canyon and Capitol Reef National Parks. We planned to spend three nights in Moab as a base to visit Arches and Canyonlands National Parks. This was by far the biggest town we had seen since Las […]

Summer Road Trip – Capitol Reef National Park

After Zion and Bryce Canyon, Capitol Reef National Park was our next stop.  This is the least-visited of Utah’s national parks. However it is well worth a visit, with some interesting historic attractions to go with the usual geological wonders. Introduction to Capitol Reef National Park It was another hot summer day in Utah, so we got […]

Summer Road Trip – Bryce Canyon to Capitol Reef

Just like the drive from Zion to Bryce Canyon, there is plenty of great scenery on the drive from Bryce Canyon to Capitol Reef National Park. Getting back on to Utah Scenic Byway 12 and heading east reinforces the fact that not all of Utah’s scenic wonders are in the national parks. Kodachrome Basin State Park […]

Summer Road Trip – Bryce Canyon National Park

After a fairly short but interesting drive from Zion National Park, we made it to Bryce Canyon National Park in time for a quick lunch. We actually stopped at a diner just outside the park entrance.  This turned out to be a mistake, the food is much better in the restaurant in the park. At […]

Summer Road Trip – Zion to Bryce Canyon

According to Google Maps, it only takes an hour and a half to drive from Zion to Bryce Canyon National Park.  However, there are quite a few things to see along the way, so it’s worth taking your time.  Read on to find out about some of the places to see along the way, showing […]

Summer Road Trip – Zion National Park

2016 was the first year for the awesome Every Kid In a Park program, which worked out well for us because Lachlan was in the 4th grade. This program provides 4th graders and their families a free pass for federally managed lands and waters. This includes national parks, forests, wildlife refuges and marine sanctuaries.  We decided to […]
