  Bryce Canyon National Park      Photo by Jenny Uhling Indeed the Mighty Five are awaiting your visit this year 2021. It's been quite a ride and a nasty one with COVID-19 and we're all itching and hoping for some good times to roll in. Sunshine desert and landscapes galore await visitors from all over the world. Especially the Mighty Five - Arches National Park, Bryce Canyon National Park - Canyonlands National Park - Capitol Reef National Park and Zion National Park.  Each one has something special to offer, but all have a lifetime of memories that are priceless once experienced. If you love red rock country, hoodoos, dry heat, deserts and natural landscapes well...Southern Utah has you covered.  Zion National Park is the southern most destination near to Spring City and St. George. Now if you enjoy the night life, I'd pick that one, because you're about only 120 miles or 193 kilometers away from Las Vegas, Nevada . If you're a good driver and don't stop ever

Watch Gigantic And Interesting Soaring Landscapes Awaiting You

Of all the states in western United States... Utah is the most unique with Southern Utah deserts and Northern Utah forests. Salt Lake City is situated neatly along the Wasatch Front mountains , which are an outcrop of the Rocky Mountain range. Probably the most popular part of Western United States is the Rocky Mountains, the insurmountable undeniable intimidating mountain range. At least to the first pioneering fur traders and mountain men.

Since at least before Eisenhower put into creation the U.S. highway infrastructure , traveling into the westward boundaries of United States was much more difficult if not impossible. Of course people have traveled into the eastern regions, but on horse or by foot.  Lewis and Clark made the trek, and many others like Daniel Boone and Davy Crockett . Ev

Hidden gems of Northern Utah's Logan for outdoor enthusiasts and everything in between

                                           Logan as a University Town Logan is home to Utah State University and with that said it is hip and always in the loop. What do I mean? Well, with university towns fluctuation of people is renewed every year. Graduation parties and new students coming in from all over the United States. Logan is also a city that is nearby a lot of outdoor activities namely Bear Lake and of course Logan Canyon .  What is the point of this article? Well, for one I would like to write about how nice and pleasant Logan is, and share some of its great attributes. Right of the bat I would say it is much cooler up in Logan than in Salt Lake City. Logan is about 82 miles away from Salt Lake City and it takes about an hour and twenty minutes driving.  The beautiful thing about Logan is not only the destination but the drive up north which can be very relaxing, given that you enjoy riding in a car. Some people don't appreciate the ride, but rather only focus on th

Landscape Poetry: Let us allow nature to be nature, expand not into untouched wilderness

  Sandstone carved by time eternal in a deserted desert. The smooth curves are flowing as liquid frozen in time. Rain eroded and created a masterpiece for all to see till time eternal. Walk lightly upon these structures of time and space for they were created over eons of time. Creating such a masterpiece again would take longer than how long the human race has had to cultivate their understanding of this world. Will humankind be gentle and observant on how nature sculpted these canyons? Are we able to put aside expanding into nature and build upon the lands we already tread on? Let us not expand into the wilderness and make more scars upon this earth. Make better what is already being used and let us renovate and create better living quarters from the places we reside in now. Stop creating and encroaching upon the last natural lands of our earth. Lets make our land heal and help it heal for generations to come. Stop the expansion into untouched nature. We have our cities and towns and
