Monday, August 23, 2010 : Canyonlands National Park, Salt Lake City

 

roadmap-us mark-5-5-us A longer drive, in the desert at start, then less dry as we neared Salt Lake City. The climb between Price and Soldier Summit is beautiful. Salt Lake City deserves a visit, mostly for the Mormon Church buildings.
attractions-us mark-5-5-us Canyonlands, in its Island in the Sky part, is wild, dry, very spectacular. A lot of hiking trails.
weather-us mark-5-5-us Beautiful weather, nothing to add.
hotel-us mark-3-5-us The Royal Garden Inn in Salt Lake City is a rather average hotel, very clean. The next morning, breakfast service is disorganised. We have dinner in a nice but very noisy restaurant.

A hot day, Canyonlands in sunshine. But the landscapes really deserve a visit.
