The Experience

Utah’s Phenomenal National Parks

Walk and the morning goes by, walk some more and three days pass. Time has its own rules here. You remind yourself that time and water are to blame for all this. Not blame, thank. It’s so indescribable. Sometimes it’s an illusion. “Are those miniature formations or massive ones?” One second the geology is like a city skyline, the next it’s another planet. The colors, the plant life, the birds and animals, you’re forever wondering how they all got here. It’s a place that gets along pretty well without people. And as you walk, you’ll be glad about that. Astonishing rock formations, river-carved canyons and Navajo sandstone cliffs Hike amid Bryce’s hoodoos and spires Splash your way through the Narrows in Zion Angels Landing, with views of soaring rock faces and a yawning canyon abyss Meet a local expert who reveals the area’s geologic evolution
