Discover the natural diversity of Utah
. Drive the roads of the Uinta Wasatch Cache National Park

This trip scenario is for those who are ready for adventures in the area of Martian-like landscapes. We can't offer you a tour to the red planet yet, but we can say that a trip to the canyons and national parks of Utah will give you a lot of emotions as well!
You will drive along the mountain roads and winding off-road routes, the landscapes outside the car window will change and amaze with their contrast, pristine forest terrain and desert landscapes will open up in front of you, you will walk near waterfalls, relax on the shore of the lake and climb on the rocky ledges.

Day 1: Adventure Begins!
So, the adventure begins. The first stop is the Uinta Wasatch Cache National Park, where you can go hiking and take a lot of beautiful pictures, then go to the waterfalls, and in the evening get to Scofield Park and relax by the lake. The itinerary is quite intense, the road trip is quite far away from the city, you may wish to skip some places in order to stay longer in the others.
