We didn’t have a full week to take off of work but wanted to be sure and enjoy the amazing Utah sites that the state has to offer! So why not have Thanksgiving in the Mountains? Our weekend bucket list included Zion National Park, Bryce Canyon & Arches National Park. Making this happen in four days required a bit of driving but it is totally possible!Pro Tip: If you have more time be sure and add on Page, Arizona to the list. This could end up being the most epic trip you’ve ever taken! See our blog on Page, Arizona here.
Bryce Canyon National Park:- 1 dayWe were lucky enough to hit this area on a beautiful snowy Thanksgiving day. Check our this amazing experience here! We made our 45 minute trek back to Zion to our campground near Zion and to get in some early hiking!
This park in one that will take your breath away from the moment you get to the entrance! Be sure and take at least two days here. If you have longer, for sure spend more time hiking. Check out all the info here.
The next day you are going to drive a beautiful, open desert drive about 4 hours to:
Dead Horse Point State Park - 1 dayWe didn't get a chance to check this park out as we wanted to see more of Arches in our short time. But it is a beautiful park near Moab, Utah and Arches National Park! Hope you enjoy Southern Utah as much as we did :)
