Towering cliffs of red, white, and pink Navajo sandstone, stream-carved slot canyons, and big blue sky all characterize Zion National Park.
Escape the urban bustle at Zion National Park and Angel's Landing. Spend the 26th (Wed) exploring nature at The Narrows. Spend the 29th (Sat) exploring nature at Canyon Overlook Trail. There's still lots to do: cruise along Zion Canyon Scenic Drive, admire all the interesting features of Zion Shuttle, explore the striking landscape at Emerald Pools, and get great views at Observation Point.

Moab

The gateway to Utah's popular canyon country, Moab sits engulfed in the middle of desert wilderness.
Kick off your visit on the 1st (Mon): get the adrenaline pumping with an extreme tour. Here are some ideas for day two: scramble along the landscape with a canyoning and rapelling tour, then take in the dramatic natural features at Delicate Arch, and then take in the dramatic natural features at Turret Arch.

To see photos, where to stay, maps, and other tourist information, refer to the Moab vacation planner .

Traveling by car from Zion National Park to Moab takes 5.5 hours. Alternatively, you can do a combination of car and flight; or do a combination of taxi, flight, and car. Plan for somewhat warmer nights when traveling from Zion National Park in July since evenings lows in Moab dip to 22°C. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 3rd (Wed) to allow enough time to drive back home.
