Much of what Utah has to offer is waiting to be enjoyed through the lens of a favorite American pastime: the road trip.
Road tripping through Utah is remarkable for the tremendous diversity of scenic grandeur on display, as well as for the way Utah stands out culturally from its neighbors in the American West. Each journey is a photographer’s paradise, a hiker’s nirvana, a Western historian’s feast, and a geologist’s ultimate dream world, particularly along what we call the Road to Mighty.
