Slightly larger than the state of Delaware, the Grand Staircase conjures a great anvil placed atop the land. Its layers alternate from pink, gray, and white, to vermillion and chocolate. The beauty of these cliffs reveals much history in a myriad of ruins, fossils, not to mention dinosaur bones.
To the east, through contrasts of sublime desert and dense woodlands, lies Capitol Reef National Park. There, roads as winding as they are lengthy cut through a maze of twisting canyons. A seemingly endless array of arches and monoliths make for a visually dazzling landscape. On bikes turned search engine, we ride over and around a western version of Stonehenge, exploring places with names as intriguing as the terrain itself: Hell’s Backbone, Spooky Canyon, Death Box Hollow Wilderness, and Brimstone Canyon. Between rides and hikes we kick back in the small ranching-farming hamlets of Boulder and Escalante, both of which hark back to a gentler, more intimate Americaness.
While a Parks Service naturalist once hailed Escalante as “Perhaps the most ruggedly beautiful and remote rockscape in America,” we reduce it to pure desert gold, if not one of our statement tours.
