Planning for your epic family Utah trip can be fun, enjoyable and not take months to do! In this blog post follow our family we talk about everything you will want to do with your family in Utah. Seth and I have photographed at many destinations so we were ready to take our family here!
We began our epic family Utah trip by flying into Salt Lake City where we rented a car. After renting a car for the week, we began our voyage to Moab, Utah where we were renting a tiny home for 3 days. What luck that 2/5 incredible Utah National Parks are so close to each other in the town of Moab.
The drive from Salt Lake City to Moab is an adventure of its own! We encountered a real avalanche and a porcupine. We learned that you will need to buy a state map just in case of road closures. To keep the fun going, we made sure to pull off as we drove. A simple pull off in Utah can land you off-path expereinces! We found caves, wild life and unique vegetation unlike we could expereine in Ohio.
Our first day of adventures in Moab began with a day adventure at the Arches National Park. We chose to go off the paved paths and further our explorations by climbing these incredible rock formations. We quickly learned that our boys are going to need proper hiking shoes and not just tennis shoes! The town on Moab had everything that we needed.
Seth and I had recently visited the Grand Canyon so when entered Canyonlands National Park we couldn’t believe this wasn’t the same park! This is the second park in the town of Moab.
Next stop, Capitol Reef. What a surprise this park was to our family. We loved just taking the day to explore all there was. Hiking on the floor of the park or taking the trails high into the rock formations filled our day with so many memories. Take a camera, snacks and water as you will need them.
Hoodoos at Bryce National Park is our 4th Park. Though only 2 trails were open because of a recent snow, we had a great day playing in the creeks and meeting other families along the way.
The last and arguably the most epic park is Zion National Park. We stayed in the park in a small cabin. The cabin was nestled in-between two incredible mountains providing a majestic experience. We hiked Angels landing, toured the Narrows and enjoyed many family hikes.
