Utah... is defined by its terrain. Absolutely stunning landscapes, which include the Navajo Indian Nation, have also featured in Hollywood's famous movies like Stagecoach, Mission Impossible II National Lampoon's Vacation even music videos and television. The Landscape is fantastic and nothing can prepare you for this. The unique sandstone formations make it a must see attraction.

The proximity of the National parks and the national monuments, that have a few hours driving , allows visitors to make a planned round trip. The drive between each park was phenomenal.

We visited Utah in May 2011. We had 6 days to spend out there. The  total driving time was 30 hours plus. But so worth making it all the way up here. We visited Zion National Park, Bryce Canyon National Park, Arches National Park and Monument Valley. Visiting in May had its advantages like  day light saving hours plus great comfortable weather.
