National Parks in the United States: These 5 You Must Experience is written by Michael Bo Christensen

Utah is more than just a state

I am often asked which American state I liked best. That’s a nice question, because it gives me a good opportunity to talk about Utah and its uniqueness national parks.

Utah's name comes from "Ute", which means "Earth of the Sun". It is at the same time the name of the Indian tribe Ute who lived here before the whites came. Ute was feared by both settlers and the Navajo tribe, with whom Ute was often at war. The Ute Indians called themselves "People of the mountains", which fits well as 60% of the state is located at an altitude of over 1600 meters.

Utah has five national parks that can all compete with places like the Grand Canyon. Many Danes have also visited Zion and Bryce in particular, as many travel agencies guide them to. Unfortunately, many national parks such as the Arches, Canyonlands and Capitol Reef overlook. It's a shame.

All five parks are quite a short distance apart and can be reached within two and a half hours. Several of the roads used are in the category “Scenic Drive” or “Scenic Byways” - ie particularly beautiful routes. These are often as great experiences as the destination itself.

There are also several state-of-the-art state parks and nature areas such as Goblin Valley State Park and Devils Garden.

USA - Virgin River in Zion - travel

Zion: One of the more famous national parks in the United States

The mountains and valleys of Zion are a color palette of impressions. The Virgin River meanders through this area, which is best seen from the numerous hiking trails that exist. Some are easy, while others are both demanding and terrifying. The road into Zion from the east is perhaps the most beautiful I have seen in USA.
