  1. Fewer Crowds:  Tourism in Southern Utah peaks in spring after winter has melted away and the wildflowers are blooming, and in summer when kids are out of school and parents rely on the great outdoors for family time. Fall is a quieter season in canyon country and offers more breathing room and solitude to explore the vast wilderness. Enjoy fewer cars on the road, no lines to get in and better rates for lodging!DSC 9874 edit
  2. Ideal Weather:  Strong gusts of winds howl through Southern Utah during the springtime but tend to dissipate in the fall. Additionally, temperatures are typically 70-75 degrees with sunshine making for pleasant adventures in canyon country. IMG 4492 edit 960
  3. Fall Colors:  When thinking about the best places to see fall colors in the country, red rock country is not what usually comes to mind, but it couldn’t be further from the truth. There is a range of opportunities to admire the cottonwood and aspens turning from green to golden in Southern Utah. The canyons are dotted with grand cottonwoods that make a striking contrast against the warm red canyon walls. Drive up into the Henry Mountains to admire a forest of aspens making the transition to fall.IMG 0803 edit 960
