Bryce Canyon National Park is named for just one of many canyons which form a series of horseshoe-shaped amphitheaters on the edge of the Paunsaugunt Plateau in southern Utah. Erosion has carved colourful Claron limestone’s into thousands of spires, fins, arches and mazes. Collectively called, hoodoos, these unique formations are whimsically arranged and tinted with colours too numerous and subtle to name.

Mesa Verde, Spanish for green table, offers a spectacular look into the lives of the Ancestral Pueblo people who made it their home for over 700 years, from A.D. 600 to A.D. 1300. Today, the park protects over 4,000 known archaeological sites, including 600 cliff dwellings. These sites are some of the most notable and best preserved in the United States.

Four Corners National Monument, the only point in America where you can stand in four states at once, will be first on the list during your drive today.
On your way to Monument Valley, you'll cross Navajo Country which provides the most enduring and definitive images of the American West. The isolated red mesas and buttes surrounded by desert have been filmed and photographed countless times over the years for movies, adverts and holiday brochures. You'll definitely have a feeling of deja vu.
This valley is not a valley in the conventional sense, but rather a wide flat, desolate landscape, interrupted by crumbling formations rising hundreds of feet into the air - the last remnants of the sandstone layers that once covered the entire region.
