• Exploring Bryce Canyon National Park: Among Utah's -- and maybe the nation's -- most scenic parks, Bryce Canyon is also one of the most accessible. Several trails lead down into the canyon -- more like walks than hikes, so just about everyone can get to know this beautiful jewel up close. Part of the Rim Trail is even wheelchair accessible. The colorful rock formations are panoramically impressive when viewed from the rim but become fanciful works of art as you walk among them.

  • Enjoying Capitol Reef National Park: This tranquil park isn't as well known as Bryce or Zion, but it has an understated beauty all its own. And it's not too demanding, either: Wander through the orchards of Fruita, hike the Capitol Gorge Trail, stroll up the Grand Wash, or sit under the stars roasting marshmallows over a campfire.

  • Houseboating on Lake Powell: Kick back and relax while floating on the deep blue waters of man-made Lake Powell, with towering red rocks all around and an azure sky above. Feeling warm? Slip over the side for a dip in the cool water. Want a little exercise? Anchor yourself, and hike to the surrounding natural beauties, such as the Rainbow Bridge.
