The alarm goes off in our hotel room at the un-natural time of 4:30 a.m. It's our first full day in Utah, and we're heading to Zion National Park, the first of five national parks we'll be hiking over six days. Sound impossible? Well, we made it happen, and so can you. Utah's national parks -- Zion, Bryce Canyon, Capitol Reef, Canyonlands and Arches -- make up "The Mighty Five" and stretch across the southern half of the state.
Throughout our whirlwind road trip, we were constantly in awe of the natural beauty carved into this ancient landscape. While we snapped so many, many more pics, here are six photos that will make you want to leave right now to hike in Utah's national parks.
I saw the photos they were able to capture on their Utah hiking trip on the Watch Us Wander Facebook page and Instagram feeds, and I had to ask Kelly to write a post to tell all about this incredible and ambitious trip. Many thanks to Kelly for agreeing to share a slice of their experience.
As always, thanks for reading,
