We will be adventuring through all of these throughout our time on the road – Arches, Canyonlands, Capitol Reef, Bryce Canyon, and Zion. When we are not sight-seeing and hiking through the parks, we will spend time cooking amazing food and sharing life around the campfire. Our trip in Utah will end with an adventurous day of canyoneering (rappelling through and traversing slot canyons).
