From the outside of the Antelope Canyons in Arizona, you would never recognize the entrance to this gorgeous wonder of nature. It blends in with the area around it and there is nothing spectacular to it. Actually, it is incredible that it was ever even found. But once inside, you dive into a world of color and texture and wish you would never have to leave it again. Read more about the Antelope Canyons

The Valley of Fire State Park in Nevada is a fascinating landscape in Nevada is just a short trip from Las Vegas and a great way to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city if you long for nature. You can combine it with a trip to Lake Mead as it is also close by, or take just the day to see this state park by itself. Read more about the Valley of Fire.


Canyons 6
Zion National Park, located in the southwest corner of Utah is nature at its best. The fee to enter the park is 25 dollars (as of summer 2010) which is a pass to enter the park for a week. It is really not possible to see all of the sights in one day, especially if you like to take time to hike some of the many trails found at the park so you may like to plan more time for this particular place. Read more about the Zion National Park.


Canyons 5
The road going through the Bryce Canyon National Park in Utah is about 29 kilometers long (about 18 miles). That may not seem like a lot but you still should plan at least a whole day as there are many vista points, each being worth to stop at. We realised that once evening arrived and we still had not reached the last vista point before we had to leave.

Even without a map, you will easily find the stopping points as they are also indicated by signs on the side of the road. Each point has hiking trails, some are even interconnecting to the next vista point, in case you would like to stroll along the rim. There are also many trails leading visitors deep into the canyons for an insight of how it feels to be between the hoodoos, instead of just seeing them from above.

Canyons 4
The canyon like landscape around Lake Mead in Nevada is at some points almost out of this world. You actually feel like you are on another plant at some points. Read more about the Lake Mead.


Canyons 7
St. George is a great location to stay if you are intending on seeing Bryce Canyon and the Zion National Park in Utah. Also, just around the corner from St. George, about 15 kilometers north of the city is the Snow Canyon State Park. The park was full of geological treasures such as fascinating rock formations and breathtaking landscapes such as sand dunes, lava flows and even a slot canyon.
