The gateway to Utah's popular canyon country, Moab sits engulfed in the middle of desert wilderness.
Change things up with these side-trips from Moab: Canyonlands National Park (Monument Basin, Mesa Arch, & more), Gateway Colorado Automobile Museum (in Gateway) and Arches National Park (Pine Tree Arch Trail, Pothole Arch, & more). There's still lots to do: scramble along the landscape with a canyoning and rapelling tour, take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Colorado National Monument, immerse yourself in nature at Dead Horse Point State Park, and grab your bike and head to Potash Road.

You can find hoodoos--rock pillars formed by erosion--all around the world, but those of Bryce Canyon National Park remain the standard bearers thanks to their bright red color, tall stature, and arrangement in large amphitheaters.
Start off your visit on the 31st (Sat): look for gifts at Ruby's Inn Canyon Rock Shop, then take in breathtaking views at Sunset Point, then trek along Navajo Loop Trail, and finally hike along Navajo/Queens Garden Loop. Keep things going the next day: explore the striking landscape of Peek-A-Boo Loop, take in panoramic vistas at Bryce Point, and then go for a walk through Paria View.
