Trip To Utah National Parks

utah 1

“The use of traveling is to regulate imagination by reality, and instead of thinking how things may be, to see them as they are.” – Samuel Johnson

To cover three national parks in three days was not easy, but we did it! A trip that we had been planning for a while now, finally happened. There were long hours of driving and long minutes of trekking 🙂  And then, there were lonely highways with no services for miles after miles, which made us wonder if we were the only one visiting the place!

Overall, it was fun ride and a place worth visiting.. only wished we had more time in hand 🙂

    Hi Kankana, Such beautiful parks and pics! You must have had a wonderful time seeing with your own eyes all these marvelous places. It reminds me our family trip back in 1995 to the Grand Canyon! Yeh, sometimes you feel alone in the desert! Scary!

    Wow, that beautiful pictures – especially that last one from Day 1 – makes me wish we had stunning scenery like that in France sometimes. We have the odd mountain range but nothing as massively breathtaking as this. Thanks so much for sharing 🙂

    Wow! I was there both the Bryce canyon and Zion national park. As matter of fact my husband and I lived as newly wed in Virgin Utah for 6 months, which is on the way to Zion. That was long time ago but,,,bring back many found memories.
    Thank you for the wonderful pictures.

    And thank you for your kind comments on my blog.
