Southern Utah is an extraordinary destination, with landscapes so filled with staggering beauty, drama, and power that it seems a place of myth. Five spectacular national parks and an enormous, wild national monument all lie within a day's drive of one another, and steep canyons, towering rock walls, red hoodoos, rock arches, petrified sand dunes, slickrock, deeply carved river gorges, dry washes, and slot canyons reveal the distinctive nature of this sublime region. Area experts W. C. McRae and Judy Jewell, authors of Moon Handbooks Zion and Bryce, help you have a truly personal experience. Suggested travel strategies and lists of must-see sights provide you with real insights so you can decide where you should go, stay, and eat—without hassles or regrets. The authors detail where to trek, climb, mountain bike, and raft between slot canyons or vast canyon walls. Complete with maps, photographs, illustrations, and special emphasis on leading destinations such as Zion, Bryce, Arches, Capitol Reef, and Grand Staircase-Escalante, Moon Handbooks Zion and Bryce has the tools you need to create your own unique trip.
