Sweet Southwest Escape

This October, escape to the gorgeous parklands of the Desert Southwest on an easy-going getaway with plenty of laid-back adventure and fresh air. Off the Beaten Path's guided group journey to Arches, Canyonlands, and Monument Valley lets you explore these fantastically wild landscapes at an active but unhurried pace with an exceptional guide. Each day takes you to a new destination, for a fresh experience, with a different view. The weather will be ideal, and you'll find yourself in hidden-away places you likely wouldn't discover on your own.

Nose-to-window scenic drives convey you from one amazing place to another on the 5-day journey:

Arches National Park: Patient and powerful forces of nature sculpted the greatest density of natural arches in the world here. Short hikes to Delicate Arch and other features reveal an incredible range of color and texture in this soft-stone landscape.

Colorado River Float: Relax into river time on a day-long float down a peaceful section of the Colorado. You'll get a spectacular view of the towers, spires, and pedestals of Fisher Towers, and drift through intimate canyons and lovely valleys.

Canyonlands National Park: The surreal, eroded landscape of Canyonlands draws you into its fascinating puzzle of canyons, buttes, mesas, and pinnacles. The Needles District, where you'll be, was named for its colorful spires.

Monument Valley: Situated on the Navajo Reservation on the Utah/Arizona border, this quintessential western backdrop is familiar from John Wayne movies and Roadrunner cartoons. A jeep tour takes you to iconic features like John Ford's Point.

Canyons of the Ancients: Feel a true sense of discovery and mystery here, where roads are few, and undeveloped archaeological sites are many. Weave on a loom, grind corn on a metate, and view an impressive collection of artifacts at the Anasazi Heritage Center.

Let yourself linger on the cusp of fall in the tantalizing southwest. Call today or visit our web site to reserve your spot on this trip!
