Explore remote southern Utah’s Capitol Reef, where Old West bandits Butch Cassidy and the Wild Bunch were rumored to hide out. Take a family adventure into this stunning desert landscape of slot canyons, arches, natural bridges, spires and the immense Waterpocket Fold. The Navajo once called this place the Land of the Sleeping Rainbow and it’s really unlike any other place on Earth.

- Hoist yourself up and into the saddle to experience the wonder of seeing Bryce Canyon just like early explorers—on the back of a mule (Just for kids!)
- Navigate a flat and easygoing path into an impressive canyon that turns into an exciting narrows section with sheer vertical walls
- Feast your eyes on the pure darkness of the desert night sky, taking your stargazing to a whole new level
