Leaving the glitter of Las Vegas behind, your first day takes you to Bryce Canyon National Park
where erosion has shaped colorful sandstone into thousands of spires, fins, pinnacles, and mazes.
These formations are collectively called "hoodoos". You will marvel at these whimsical formations inside giant horseshoe-shaped amphitheaters.
The Navajo or Bristlecone Loop and Queens Garden trails are just a few of the great hiking options
available in this unique park.
Our accommodations for this evening are located at the Coral Pink Sand
Dunes State Park, a giant pink sand box on the Colorado Plateau. The sweeping expanse of dunes is
a massive playground for hiking or just playing in the sand.
The second day of this adventure takes you to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. Here you can
hike along the rim of the Grand Canyon where spectacular views of this tremendous wonder of the
world abound. Visit the historic lodge and look out it's giant windows to the canyon below, or
enjoy a Ranger talk by the stone fireplace.
If time allows, you can take a horseback ride into the canyon on one of the scenic trails. In
the evening you will get the chance to explore the Sand Dunes once again back at camp.
Your final day starts early as we head to Zion National Park. Zion grabs your focus with its sheer
sandstone walls and dramatic cliffs. After a quick stop at the Visitor's Center you will have the
opportunity to hike the Narrows (weather permitting), summit Angel's Landing or relax by the Virgin
River. If you feel adventurous, you can rent a tube and go for a float.
Horseback riding is a great way to explore Zion. For those wanting a break from hiking,
the free shuttle to Springdale offers restaurants and shopping with local artists flair.
After a good day of hiking, we will say goodbye to the canyons and return to Las Vegas.
