Exploring Arches National Park in Utah

Out of all of Utah’s national parks – Zion, Bryce Canyon, Arches, Canyonlands, Capitol Reef, and the north rim of the Grand Canyon – Arches unfortunately gets skipped by potential visitors. With fewer than one million visitors each year, there is a huge opportunity to enjoy the vast high-desert lands in solitude.

About Arches National Park

Arches national park is a dynamic – ever changing – land with new forming and disappearing arches, spires, fins, windows, pinnacles, and miraculously balanced rocks taking place every year. With over 2,000 recorded structures the park has something to awe at around every corner.

The park is desert land located in elevations ranging from 4,085 to 5,653 feet (1,245-1,723) above sea level. While the park is open year round the climate varies dramatically depending on the season. Summers are very hot while winters are dry and cold. Fluctuations in as much as 50 degrees may occur within any given day.

Summer of Salt; Salt Lake City, Utah

It’s like the surface of Venus, barren and haunting.

Even the most resilient plants and animals can’t live there. It’s a snow white wasteland of salt and sky covering a vast area of northwestern Utah.  Adding to the eerie atmosphere is the utterly flat and smooth landscape, so flat that they say you can see the Earth’s curvature.

Is it true?

You will have to see for yourself…Continue

Winter Fun; Salt Lake City, Utah

It’s like being six different Olympic athletes in one weekend. Try your hand at bob-sledding, ski jumping, speed skating, downhill skiing, snowboarding and cross-country skiing. When you get bored (really hard to imagine) there is a host of other activities that will keep your heart pumping and mouth smiling.

The Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City have come and gone, but there are plenty of reminders, including all the Olympic Park facilities. What does this mean for you? A lot of fun doing things you never dreamed of. Continue

Bryce Canyon National Park; Utah

If it was anywhere else in the United States, it would be the star attraction. Alas, when you lie on the outskirts of The Grand Canyon, Zion National Park, Lake Powell, Monument Valley and Arches National Park, it’s easy to get lost in the crowd.

Nevertheless, the spectacular rock formations and brilliant colors of Bryce Canyon should not be missed, there is nothing quite like it in the world.

Nature’s Amphitheaters

Bryce Canyon National Park is located 273 miles (440km) south of Salt Lake City, not far from the border of Arizona. It’s one of Utah’s smallest national parks at 36,000 acres (1457 ha), but stands tall at 9,000 feet (2700m), dwarfing both the Grand Canyon and Zion National Park.

Each year, almost one million people come to witness the distinctive wind and water eroded landscape.  Clusters of natural amphitheaters with many thousands of “hoodoos”, or delicate fairy chimneys, stretch into the distance, providing a other-worldly setting similar to those found in Cappadocia, Turkey.
