The landscape here is startlingly similar to certain swaths of Australia except that its all crowded into a much smaller space and is more of an onslaught to the senses. The topography here is younger, more majestic, whereas in Northern Territory part of the awe was the age of the landscape and its vastness. Above, Arches National Park. Below, not everything is red, but its still pretty spectacular.
We drive Scenic Byways to our heart’s content and revisit Zion National Park, which is just as grand the second time around. Also, we’ve entered the West where there’s free camping at all public lands, so that’s awesome. Below, the most pleasant campsite ever and J, now picking up the habit of only brushing her teeth next to picturesque bubbling brooks.
We have a grand old time in Utah, but are ready to re-gain a bit of elevation again and get out of the desert. Next up, California and Sequoia National Park!
Lots of Love,
C and J
