A few fun Utah adventures our office has experienced lately –
From Derek Mellus:
Spent some time in mid-March with youngest my sister and her husband exploring the Grand Staircase–Escalante area. Our backpacking route was both challenging and inspiring as it weaved through slot canyons, up and over chockstones and across slickrock that spanned acres of the most beautiful country on Earth.
From Ben Dodds:
I went to Gooseberry Mesa with my 14-year-old son, David, and my brother, Sam, from Las Vegas. Gooseberry Mesa is an outstanding trail system just south of Zion National Park, and the views are incredible. It varies from single track between juniper trees to technical waves of slick rock. Most mountain bikers who I’ve talked to consider it one of Utah’s best rides. My son proclaimed, “Dad, this is like riding on the moon!”
From Andrew Gillman:
At the end of April, my wife and I visited San Juan County for the first time. In addition to a “deluxe” jeep tour of Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park, we enjoyed perfect days for hiking in Hovenweep, Natural Bridges and Bears Ears national monuments and weathered near-freezing overnights camping under pristine dark skies in Hovenweep’s campground and dispersed on Bears Ears.
Celina Sinclair led a group of Chinese Tour Operators through the state and visited some of our National Parks and hidden gems, like the Homestead Crater.
