Utah Bucket List~ Southwest Region

Ok, today we are moving into the Southwest region of Utah…which inadvertently has some Southeast locations mixed in, because like I mentioned in my previous Utah post, their guidebook is not overly helpful! But here it goes!

Brian Head

  • Cedar Breaks National Monument: A natural amphitheater with stunning views.


  • Bryce Canyon National Park: Beautiful park known for its stunning red rock formations.


  • Glen Canyon/Lake Powell Recreation Area: This is one thing that got mixed around in regions, but this area has a little something for everyone!


  • Kodachrome Basin State Park: Known for its stunning stone spires.


  • Escalante Petrified Forest State Park: A chance to check out a petrified forest!

Fountain Green

  • Maple Canyon: Canyon great for climbing due to its cobblestone cliffs.


  • Snow Canyon State Park: Canyon with distinctive red and white rock.


  • Buckskin Gulch: The longest and deepest slot canyon in the southwest.
  • Coral Pink Sand Dunes State Park: Beautiful red sand dunes.
  • Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument: Fun place to hike that includes Calf Creek Falls.

Lake Powell

  • Rainbow Bridge: Another that should have made it into the southeast region, but it is the highest natural bridge.


  • Zion National Park: Utah’s famed park that includes red rocks, canyons, forested areas, and waterfalls.


  • Capitol Reef State Park: Known for its canyons and rock formations.

All attractions found in the 2019 Utah Travel Guide.
