The Ultimate Itinerary for a Visit to Moab, Utah

I've lost track of how many times I've visited Moab. It's one of my favourite places - not because the town is anything special; rather, it's centrally located in an area of extreme beauty and within a short distance of Arches and Canyonlands National Parks. I think spring or fall are the best times to visit. Our first visit was in August - for a canoeing trip on the Green River. It was a big…

Exploring The Pothole Point Area

Day Trip to Needles District, Canyonlands National Park

On our trip in late March to Utah we took one day and drove south to the Needles District of Canyonlands National Park. The area is far less busy than the Island in the Sky part of Canyonlands, yet it's equally beautiful. With over 60 miles of trails - covering all levels of difficulty, you'll easily find plenty to do in a day. I wish we'd had more time. Apart from a stop at the Newspaper Rock…

The Closer You Get To The Rim The More Spectacular The Scenery

The Hike to Murphy Point Canyonlands National Park

If you're looking for great scenery and a peaceful, relaxing outing do the hike to Murphy Point in Canyonlands National Park, Island in the Sky area. It's all of 1.8 miles one way  to the Murphy Point Overlook - with 150 feet of elevation. Once there the views of the western end of Island in the Sky are superb. Reportedly this is a good hike for the morning when the lighting is good or of…

Hiking In The Devils Garden Arches

The Devils Garden Hike in Arches National Park

Updated January 2020 If there is one must-do hike in Arches National Park, I think it has to be the Devils Garden hike - a loop that includes the Primitive Trail. Over its 7.2 mile length you are treated to the highest concentration of arches in the world - if you include all the spur trails. The Devils Garden hike is truly a breathtaking beauty and one of my picks for top one day hikes…

Hiking The Fairyland Loop In Bryce Canyon

The Fairyland Loop Trail in Bryce Canyon

The Fairyland Loop trail is one of the best hikes in Bryce Canyon National Park. And that's saying something considering the park offers some of the most beautiful landscapes in all of the United States. The Fairyland Loop trail offers superb scenery over its eight mile length. There's a bit of elevation loss and gain - 950 feet up and down but it's done gradually so you'll barely notice it. And the trail is very…

Hoodoo Mania in Bryce Canyon National Park, Utah

Bryce Canyon National Park has been on my bucket list for at least a dozen years. I think it was the photos of a cycling trip in a Backroads brochure that first caught my eye. And finally last week I made it to the park. Hoodoos are what Bryce Canyon is famous for. They come in all shapes and sizes - and even colours from light pinks through to reds, orange the shade of a pumpkin,…

Tips for Hiking and Visiting Zion National Park in Utah

Visiting Zion National Park? You should as it's a sanctuary of exotic beauty! Every year since 1988 I've visited Zion National Park to refresh my spirits by drinking in some of the most sublime, and colorful beauty on earth. The first Mormon scouts to see Zion canyon appropriately named it after the biblical heaven..."Zion", and rightfully so. Visiting Zion National Park - a hiker's park Zion includes elevations from canyon and low desert of 3,700…
