Ammon Cunningham Wants You to Visit Canyonlands

June 21, 2017
Ammon Cunningham is a very prolific writer, as well as an avid traveler, which is why he has so many favorite travel destinations to recommend. He particularly loves touting his home state of Utah as a travel destination because there is so much to see. Everyone who enjoys travel wants to see the most beautiful places in the world, and Utah is chock full of great destinations. For example, every traveler should take a look at Canyonlands National Park.

Often referred to as the Utah Grand Canyon because many of the views are just as spectacular, Canyonlands National Park features a variety of magnificent views, whether you want to see the carved canyons below or the breathtaking views of snowcapped mountains above (and usually off in the distance). Canyonlands sees more than 600,000 visitors every year, and there is a reason for that. Not only are there great things to look at, says Ammon Cunningham, but there is a lot to do, as well. Canyonlands National Park is one of the most popular recreational destinations in Utah, primarily because both the Green and Colorado Rivers both run through its center, which means that kayaking, whitewater rafting, camping and the like are always an option, in addition to the myriad challenging hiking trails that crisscross all of Canyonlands National Park.

For blogger and avid traveler Ammon Cunningham, Utah is not only his home state, but a state full of amazing destinations for travelers worldwide. Because he likes to share his love of Utah, he wants to tell you about Canyonlands National Park. Located in the southeast corner of Utah, Canyonlands is commonly referred to as Utah's Grand Canyon. That’s because the views can be just as incredible, whether they are the amazing vistas overlooking the canyons below or the beautiful snowcapped mountain views. There is a reason the park sees more than 630,000 visitors annually.

In addition to the scenery in the main section of the park, other districts are more remote but worth the hike, including Mesa Arch, which is especially stunning during sunrise and White Rim Road, a winding dirt road along sheer cliffs, featuring dramatic drops as it descends into the valley below.

Ammon Cunningham also notes that Canyonlands National Park is a popular recreational destination in Utah because both the Green River and Colorado River run through it, which means swimmers, kayakers and whitewater rafters will find a lot to do. There is something for nearly everyone.
