Utah Weekend Wonders

Utah Weekend Wonders

This time of year has me feeling grateful for all of our outdoor spaces. How lucky it is that we live in a time that makes it possible for us to take adventures all over the world.
We can travel quickly, we have gear that helps us through all weather, clothes that fit our needs and so many places to find and explore.

I feel lucky that my Dad wanted to raise us in Park City, Utah. Close to 5 amazing national parks and in the center of the Wasatch Mountains. Zion, Arches, Canyonlands, Capitol Reef, and Bryce Canyon are among some of the most beautiful places in the world. Not to mention all the areas that are not parts of the national parks that are stunning in their own right!

For Thanksgiving, we decided to head down to Escalante and Capital Reef and celebrate turkey day off the grid. Escalante is a very special place full of slot canyons to explore and waterfalls to see. Since I am pregnant I try to keeps hikes to around 5 miles in case I get too tired (the third trimester is rough)! We explored Zebra canyon, it’s a short hike into a slot canyon with beautiful textures of rock all around you.

Next, we traveled to Capital Reef (about 1.5 hours from Escalante), there is a beautiful 30 mile off road drive called Cathedral Valley and I have been waiting to go here ever since my Dad told me about it a couple years ago. Sandstone pillars that just jut out of the ground with beautiful shade of red. They are called The Pillars of the sun and moon. Can’t wait to head back to this park and explore more.
