Southern Utah and Western Colorado
June 21, 7:30 PM
Mark Zakutansky will give a presentation of a tour of Southern Utah and Western Colorado with photographs and stories. We’ll begin in the Moab, Utah area on a six-day, five-night, self-supported rafting trip down the Colorado River into Cataract Canyon, featuring challenging whitewater rapids, unique cultural sites including rock art and Native American pottery, as well as hikes from the river to areas hard to otherwise access, such as deep into the Canyonlands Needles District and the famed Doll House hike.
After navigating more than 50 class III-IV rapids in Cataract Canyon, ending on Lake Powell, we’ll then travel car from Moab to some of the most outstanding parks and natural areas in Southern Utah, including Arches National Park, Canyonlands National Park, Capitol Reef National Park, Bryce Canyon National Park, and the Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park in Colorado. Outside of these famous parks, lie some of the most spectacular off the beaten path state and local parks, as well as National Monuments including Bears Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante, and sites on BLM lands.
We’ll take a look at some of the region’s most famous arches and natural bridges, slot canyons, overlooks, cultural sites, and gateway communities. Refreshments and social time will follow the presentation. Information on upcoming outdoor events will be available.
Everyone is welcome. Reservations not required. Contact coordinator with any questions.
