Forming a bizarre and surreal landscape, the canyons of Utah's Color Country make up one of the West's most fascinating geologic wonderlands. Discover delicate arches, elaborate spires, intricate slot canyons, ancient Indian hieroglyphics, fiery slick-rock palisades, and fantastically eroded red-rock monuments and buttes. For six days we hike through this intriguing landscape, overnight in distinctive western lodges and relish fine regional cuisine. This trip is among the favorites of the owner.

Tour Itinerary:

Day 1: Arches. Arches National Park contains more than 1,500 sandstone arches -- the world's largest concentration. Here we hike through precariously balanced rocks and natural arches as we trek along slick-rock to Delicate Arch and onward to the other worldly formations of the Fiery Furnace. Includes: (D).

Day 2: Canyonlands. We depart Moab for Canyonlands National Park where we hike into the wilds of the seldom-visited Needles District. Soaring monuments and slot canyons lead us to the banded sandstone pinnacles called the "needles." Includes: (B), (L), (D).

Days 3-4: Capitol Reef. Today we shuttle along the San Rafael Swell and through the Fremont River valley en route to Capitol Reef National Park. After exploring the historic Mormon settlement of Fruita during our lunch break, we hike to fabulous Cassidy Arch, named for the famous bank robber who hid out in this area. Capitol Reef preserves an eroded jumble of colorful cliffs, massive domes, soaring spires, stark monoliths, and graceful arches. We hike through Spring Canyon beneath towering walls of Navajo sandstone on a seldom-used but wonderful trail of exploration. Includes: (B), (L), (D).

Days 5-6: Grand Staircase - Escalante. The geologic marvels of Grand Staircase - Escalante will put you in touch with pure wilderness solitude. Before flying back to Moab on our final day, we travel into Phipps Wash and to Lower Calf Creek Falls. These gorgeous, yet very different canyons, feature sheer slick-rock walls, desert wildflowers and unusual geological formations. Includes: (B), (L), (D).
