On a road trip along the Utah and Arizona border, I learned just how much there is to see in this beautiful part of the United States. From the Living Room Hike in Salt Lake City to the secret way to see Zion National park, Utah is full of delightful surprises.

Here is my collection of Utah travel stories:

A “Perfect Day” Road Trip Along the Utah and Arizona Border

From Zion National Park to Glen Canyon to Antelope Canyon, Horseshoe Bend and the Grand Canyon with – if you can believe it – stops in between, this is an ambitious addition to my “perfect day” series. But it is all possible in a day – a perfect day – to accomplish this amazing road…

A Wild Experience in Utah

My most surprising experience in Utah was when I was invited to a Wiccan Ceremony (yes, like the witches…sort of). It was hosted by a group of former Mormons and recovering addicts, and it was absolutely fascinating.
