Amazing Utah

Utah is absolutely amazing!  I used my GoPro Hero2 and made a few small time-lapse movies in some of the parks we visited.  This is a quick stitch of the movies.

In this video you see Grand Canyon (1st shot is from Grand Viewpoint, 2nd is from Angles Landing trail head), Arches National Park, Bryce Canyon, The Wave (this is in Escalante Grand Staircase National Monument; we were lucky to win the lottery for a walk in permit the day before our planned hike) and finally Monument Valley National Park (technically this is the Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park and is in Arizona but the features are in Utah).


Monument Valley

Monument Valley is a great day excursion.  There is a road that is accessible to park visitors that takes you through the park and offers some incredible photo ops.  Be sure to catch sunset from the Navajo visitor center.  The accommodations in the area are less than ideal though (at least for those on a budget), so plan ahead.
