Trip Report 2012 Utah Trip Report

Jump to last reply

It’s been five yrs since our last trip to southern Utah, and Peter and I have been aching to return. Finding dirt cheap flights and rental vehicle gave us the impetus we needed to start planning. We even decided to do some camping again this trip. Reservations were in the works by late May. We were going!

Our plans would include time at Canyonlands Needles, a full moon at Delicate Arch, and exploring ruins and rock art in Utah’s south eastern corner. We did quick visits to some old favorites like Capitol Reef & Bryce, and explored some interesting new places. We mixed car camping with small inns/motels, and only splurged a little at Boulder Mountain Lodge ($150/night). Most of our meals were in restaurants, and we enjoyed some fine dining along the way.

Mostly, we enjoyed every second of our 11 day trip, completely reaffirming our love for this magical place. Utah is an incredible state, bestowed with an abundance of history, culture and natural beauty. It won’t be another5 yrs before our next visit – that’s for sure.

Please enjoy our trip report……a rather long one but filled with photos. Happy to answer any and all questions.
Sharon and Peter
