Read an Excerpt

Moon Zion & Bryce covers the regions of Zion National Park, Bryce Canyon National Park, Grand Staircaste-Escalante National Monument, Capitol Reef National Park, Canyonlands National Park, Arches National Park, Moab, and the Southeastern Corner.

This guide highlights the best Zion and Bryce have to offer, including the Court of the Patriarchs, Angels Landing, the Emerald Pools trails, the Watchman Trail, the Narrows, the Kolob Canyons, and Red Canyon, plus a Red Rocks Road Trip.

You’ll also find suggestions for planning creative itineraries. Unique trip ideas include: “Ancient Rock Art,” which will take you far off the beaten path and deep into canyons that were once central for the area’s ancient inhabitants; “Hoodoos and Views,” a round-up of the most spectacular vistas and stone pinnacles you can find; and “Fun for All and All for Fun,” highlighting the best family activities available in Utah’s national parks.

Meet the Author

W. C. (Bill) McRae has been exploring Utah for several decades, each time getting farther off the road and digging deeper into the landscape. Every trip has a different focus, whether it's hiking into a new and more remote canyon, fixating on ancient rock art, or going deluxe at guest ranches. Bill has written for Frommer's, Lonely Planet, and Mobile Guides, and has contributed to 1000 Places to See Before You Die. He has also edited books for National Geographic and provided content for websites sucha as GORP.com and Expedia.com. When not fixing up his old house in Astoria, Oregon, Bill has a day job as a high-tech marketing writer.

While visiting Goosenecks State Park, Judy Jewell realized that, like the river below, she might be an example of entrenched meandering. Perhaps so . . . her work on the Moon Handbooks to Utah, Montana, and Oregon has taken her to both the popular destinations and the remote areas in these states. In Utah, there’s nothing she likes better than tromping through a dry wash in search of rock art or an old granary. When she’s at home in Portland, Oregon, Judy works as a technical and scientific editor and a yoga teacher.
