Exploring Utah

View From Dead Horse Point

There is more to explore in Utah. In fact, there is more National Park, National Forest and National Monument land in Utah than in any state other than Alaska (and maybe California).

Though I travel the world, as a diplomat, I always end up coming back to Utah, so, while I have not had the opportunity to explore it as deeply as I have some other places, I’ve done a bit of exploring in Utah and I have some of that in this blog.

Here are my Exploring Utah posts:

Southern Utah

Sitting Under Tower Arch, Arches National Park

Southern Utah is the home of five National Parks, seven National Monuments, and some 17 State Parks. Many of these places, such as Arches National Park, Natural Bridges National Monument, and Canyonlands National Park are unique and world famous. My most recent blogging initiative is to put together an itinerary to help people get to the most important of these. See my Southern Utah Itinerary.

Northern Utah

Northern Utah may be most famous for its ski resorts, but it has a lot more than skiing on offer. The hiking, camping, and fishing in the High Uintas and other National Forest and Wilderness areas is spectacular.

My blog posts on Northern Utah are limited, at this point, covering just a couple of hikes near the Great Salt Lake.
