What to see while exploring Utah?

Hello all,

We're taking our Forester MBS to Utah for 3-4 weeks in May. (I highly recommend retirement!)

We've been to Zion and Bryce NP in the past, also Salt Lake City and the Bonneville Salt Flats (where I blew my Sidekick's radiator but that's another story). Our focus is on scenic beauty and we're looking for suggestions. Any thoughts?

BTW, we almost never stay in a commercial park (I'm too cheap), we prefer public parks, forest, BLM, etc. And we almost always boon dock while heading to our next destination.

Thanks!

PS Our rig turned two years old in Dec and rolled over 42,000 miles. We're using that thing!

Kathi and I will be there May 14th - May 27th. We have a 2016 Sunseeker MBS 2400R.
We are staying 2 nights in Moab, then 3 nights in Arches. While in Moab we will be exploring Canyon Lands. From Arches we go to Torrey for Capital Reef, then Bryce, Zion, Grand Canyon, Sedona, ending our trip in Yosemite. For each of the National parks we have reserved rv space. That’s quite a task in itself! I think there are lots of BLM spots at most of these places as well. Can’t wait! Look for our license plates HRVE RV. We named it Harvey RV. This trip should be epic!

I hope there's a lot to see. I have 6 campgrounds booked over 3 weeks in June in Utah. Going there right after a week at Yellowstone.

Everyone covered all the national and state park recommendations I would have. Heber Creeper narrow gauge railroad is a highlight for me. It's NE of Provo. Provo is a nice city to explore. Bridal veil falls near by. Lots of Mormon history if you are interested, not just for the religious but the historic aspect. Snow canyon west of Saint George is one that lots of people miss.

Thanks to all for the great suggestions! Maybe we'll see "Harvey RV" there. We named ours the Bobmobile. Got bumper stickers to proclaim it!

Dead Horse Point State Park

In my opinion a must see. Near Arches (another must see) and not always on everybody's list. Camping right on the point and the sunrise there is fantastic.

Hint: Most of the movies that are supposed to take place in the Grand Canyon actually took place in DHPSP. Thelma and Louise for example.

while exploring Utah?

Park City Heber City area east of Salt Lake

My wife and I Zip Lined and I did the bobsled at the 2002 Winter Olympic site in Park City about 3 summers ago and we rode are side by side (Rzr 570) near Heber City

And YES retirement is great. I should have do it 30 years ago
