Q   a VirtualTourist member asked a question · June 13, 2016
Additional advice wanted  (35 Answers)

A couple of my trips in Moab are set. Sunset tour in Arches National Park, half day tour to Islands in the Sky in Canyonlands National Park and a half day dinosaur tour.
I want to do 1 more and cant decide if I want to do a 4x4 in Arches, which would be half day; the Needles in Canyonlands, which would be a full day or, maybe something else like going to Sego Canyon.

I am going to be 55 this fall, I am not really a hiker but can go for a mile or so.
Also, it may a while until I return to the area, if at all.

So, any feedback on any of this?

Camping eservations at Dead Horse Point State Park  (2 Answers)

Hi - I see you can only make reservations 4 mths ahead of arrival date. Does anyone know if dates around the 4th July are really hard to get. Should I be poised at my computer, mouse ready at 1 minute past midnight on the relevant day (when the four month window opens)? We are concerned if we miss out it will be late to find anything else and we are already struggling to find alternative tent camping options which one can reserve in advance (beyond Devils Gdn in Arches where we hope to spend a couple of nights). We don't want to risk first-come, first-served at such a busy time of year. Thank you. Sam

getting to Moab  (5 Answers)

My husband will be going to Moab for a conference and I'm helping with the travel itinerary.

We fly from out of state and I wonder if there is a major airport closer than Salt Lake City (yes, I am doing more research on this myself, now, too) --

Also, once we get to the major airport of choice, what is the best driving route to get into Moab?

Thanks!

Planning a backpacking trip to Southern Utah  (12 Answers)

OK, my boyfriend and I are starting to plan a trip: Utah at the end of August. We're planning to be there about a week.

Here's the plan so far: Fly in to Grand Junction and rent a car, drive to Moab, camp/hike in Canyonlands and Arches, other than that... who knows? Rugged wilderness abounds! Maybe Glen Canyon? Could we make it over to the western part of the state to see Capitol Reef, Bryce Canyon and Zion and?

Other things we're interested in: Ancient Native American ruins & pictographs, hot springs, caves. We love anyplace that's good for a photo op, a quick swim, spectacular scenery, or a rewarding hike.

Any suggestions on itinerary or can't miss features?

Three Days in Moab  (4 Answers)

I have three days that I will be spending in the Moab area towards the end of May. My main focus will be landscape photography, specifically sunrises and sunsets. I've read about the crowds to be expected and realize the further I hike, the less people I will see, but of course, I'm not that crazy about hiking in the dark, either, nor am I camping out. I won't be 4WD'ng it, as I really have no experience doing that. Any small tour groups anyone can recommend that might suit my needs?

Any suggestions on whether I should spend more time in Arches or Canyonlands? Should I see both the Islands in the Sky area as well as Needles in Canyonlands?

How about Goblin Valley? Is it worth the drive?

Thanks for any suggestions.
