Iconic American Southwest
October 16- 25, 2022
The American Southwest is a singular region—abundant in cultural traditions andnatural beauty, and home to some of our most iconic public lands. Our tour itinerary takes you through some of the most beautiful landscapes, with stunning views of mesmerizing red rocks, slot canyons, and rock formations in colors of dusty pink,deep oranges and brilliant red.
Autumn is an ideal time to visit Arizona’s canyonlands and Utah’s famous red rock country, when balmy weather settles on the deserts and fall colors begin to ripple across the lower elevation canyons filled with sycamores, cottonwoods, ashes, and walnuts. Our tour’s expert geologist will guide us and explain the formation of the many colorful landforms we will visit, from the Grand Canyon’s vistas of banded layers of rock bluffs rising above the Colorado River; Bryce Canyon’s rust-colored slot canyons and hoodoos—rock formations formed by erosion—to Zion’s diverse landscape of hanging gardens and sandstone monoliths. River rafting, star-gazing, optional hiking and scenic flights, and many surprises make this tour a once-in-a-lifetime experience!
