If you had to describe Utah in one word it would be: Scenic.
Driving from south to north, we started at the Red Rock in Zion National Park, went through Bryce National Park and finally got to the snow covered mountains in Salt Lake.
As an aspiring hiker, Zion National park had to be my favorite part of the trip. With so many different hiking trails, I could have easily spent a few days there exploring the different paths. But with only one day, we decided to take on the infamous Angel's Landing trail. Not for the faint of heart, the hike started with steep switchbacks before hitting a paved path for a momentary rest. After Walter's Wiggles, a set of 21 steep switchbacks, and finally reaching scouts lookout, we got to what I considered the fun part. The last part of the trail, is a 1/2 mile of narrow sandstone with anchored support chains. The total hike is 5 miles, but to me it was worth every step. The view from Angel's Landing can't be beat
The next day we started driving up north and stopped in Bryce Canyon National Park. It is hard to describe Bryce canyon, the view spans for miles and was unlike anything I had ever seen before. After the long day we had on Saturday,it was nice to be able to drive up to all of the view points of the park.
Monday was our last day in Utah and was our only day to spend in Salt Lake City. Surrounded by the beautiful snow covered mountains, we explored downtown Salt Lake during the day and had dinner at the Copper Onion, my recommendation is the duck cassoulet.
