Utah Parks

Photos from our Southern Utah Parks trip. Seven parks in ten days. Natures beauty around every bend and over each rise from Salt Lake City to Arches, Dead Horse State Park, Canyonlands, Natural Bridges, Capitol Reef, Bryce and Zion. Throw in the Hoover Dam and Las Vegas to conclude the journey. (No photos from LV because as they say, “What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas.”)
