Starting from Las Vegas would give us a good position to explore the nearby national parks. Our first stop is going to be Springdale where we'll be based for three days while exploring Zion National Park. We'll spend 3 days here exploring nearby trails and going off the unbeaten path. 📍 Next stop will be Bryce National Park. Let your imagination run wild as you visit the planet’s epicentre of hoodoos - unusual ‘fairy chimneys’ shaped erosions. With a day to spare, tack on the Fairyland Loop hike or visit Mossy Cave. We'll stop for 2 days admiring these spectacular views. Next basing ourselves in Escalante, on day 1 we'll explore the Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument, one of the largest parks of the Southwest, with some of the most spectacular, yet least visited scenaries. On day 2 we'll visit Capitol Reef National Park: International dark sky park where we'll stargaze. Our road trip will continue toward Moab where we'll stay for 3 days. We'll be situated inside Arches National Park: small in size but packed with over 2000 natural arches, this is a great park to explore, with plenty of opportunities to wander beyond the main sights for once in-a-lifetime views of an enthralling geographical process. On day 2 we'll pay a visit to Canyonlands National Park: we'll drive south to the Canyonlands’ Island in the Sky, a 6000 ft flat topped mesa. Finally, day 3 is devoted to the Needles area of the Canyonlands, named for the giant spires that rise from the desert. We'll then drive Drive through Monument valley reaching Forrest Gump hill and Mexican Hat. By this point we will have hiked a bit so we will take a chill day to get ready for second half of the trip. We'll visit the nearby Coral Pink Sand Dunes for SUNSET/SUNRISE. Before heading back to Las Vegas, we'll visit the Grand Canyon for a day to get a taste of it. From Grand Canyon we will head toward Las Vegas, however we'll detour towards the Mojave Desert for some spectacular dune scenes. We'll visit around sundown to fully capture the amazing scene. We'll then head off towards Las Vegas. 💰 What's Included? Transportation (Car, gas) Accommodation (Hotels, Hostels, B&B) National Park fees ❌ What's NOT Included?

We will end our trip where we started, Las Vegas. We will arrive in the evening most likely because we will visit Mojave Desert around sunset for a stunning view of the golden dunes. I'd reccomend staying the night in Las Vegas and leaving the following day.
