The Spectacular State of Utah

We at Travels with Gannon & Wyatt are almost always working on multiple projects at the same time and this month has been about as busy as they come. Hawaii went on sale September 6, we’re wrapping up a third draft of Australia, beginning a first draft of Cuba, and recently hit the road to start gathering research and photography for our book that will be set in the American Southwest.

We began our exploration in the beautiful state of Utah, home to red rock canyons, winding green rivers, snow capped peaks, big horned sheep, bears, mountain lions, sidewinder snakes, and a host of other desert creatures. Utah is rich in Native American history and culture and claims five of America’s most iconic National Parks — Arches, Canyonlands, Capitol Reef, Bryce, and Zion — also know as the “Mighty Five.” Those interested in the colorful characters of the “Wild West” will also appreciate the fact that Utah is the location of Robber’s Roost, the one-time hideout of the infamous bank robbers Buch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.

Just about everywhere you go in Utah the scenery is stunning, so we decided to share a few of our early photos with you. Happy Travels!
