Escape to the Remarkable, Exotic Landscape of Southeastern Utah
The National Parks and Moab in Southeastern Utah
To reach Arches National Park and Canyonlands National Park--recently made more famous because the movie 127 Hours detailed the harrowing adventure of Aron Ralston--drive south on Interstate 15 from Salt Lake City and continue south-east on Highway 6 at Spanish Fork.
Mike Tucker, who led a fun, two hour Hummer safari, took us on a drive that traversed dirt trails, dried up stream beds, and across massive boulders, a path we shared with ATVs, mountain bikes, and jeeps. We passed by Slick Rock Mountain Bicycle Trail, a world-famous, high technical ability trail, where, we were told, a "lot of broken bones" happen.
