Southern Utah has been one of our favorite destinations for decades & I don't have any one that's a favorite. They're all fantastic & spectacular in their own ways. One year at Zion we were well into the narrow when there was a massive thunderstorm & flood, but we were high enough to be safe, just. The cliffs all around looked like they had sand pouring off them. A parks worker we spoke with said it's rare to get to experience that because they close the trail at the first hint of approaching rain. They had closed it just minutes after we started the hike.

We did Arches, Zion, Canyonlands, and Bryce in May, and people were being turned away at Arches then. We would get up at 5:00AM to beat the crowds and get our hiking in before it got hot and crowded.
