Utah and Idaho

Incredible Land Formations and a walk on the moon

I've wanted to visit Utah for as long as I can remember. The pictures you see of the parks there don't seem real. This will be another packed trip trying to see as much as possible, plus adding in Idaho.

As usual, I plan to drive to a park and visit some on the day we arrive, and some the next day. We will be on the move with little relaxation time so hopefully the drive time gives us a little rest.
