Exploring Utah's most beautiful National Parks was a non-negotiable part of our road trip from Southern California to Colorado. Only slightly out of the way off Interstate 70, we couldn't miss Zion, Arches, or Canyonlands National Parks.
I'm not a planner, and that certainly didn't change when we hit the road. Most of our destinations were decided upon once we were already in the truck driving. And yet, everything always worked out just fine.
