This Academy Award nominated film was primarily shot in the Moab area and tells the story of mountain climber Aron Ralston (played by James Franco) who became trapped in a slot canyon in Southern Utah.
Following the release of the Danny Boyle-directed film 127 Hours, the Utah Office of Tourism has announced downloadable 127-hour itineraries. The film, shot on location in the state's majestic red rock country, depicts the story of hiker Aron Ralston's 127-hour, life-changing journey in Utah's Bluejohn Canyon.
