Canyonlands Lodge Ride - Colorado Plateau


Canyonlands Lodge Ride - Colorado Plateau
Utah USA

Capitol Reef and Escalante Canyons is a landscape where thousands of feet of layered, multicolored sediments have been thrust skyward by faulting of the earth's crust (the Circle Cliff anticline). Once you see this kaleidoscopic, jagged geologic spectacle, you'll understand why the Ute Indians called it the "Land of the Sleeping Rainbow ". It was the last explored and named region of the continental United States. It is a countryside of slickrock mountains punctured by deep, narrow canyons so rugged and remote that the tiny village of Boulder, Utah, which lies within it's midst, could not be reached by automobile until 1938.

To trailride this terrain and to take in panoramas of the Land of the Sleeping Rainbow breaking from the lush, alpine plateaus looming high above, is indisputably an opportunity of a lifetime. The topography of the rides is dynamic and elevation may change from below 4,000 ft. to above 11,000 ft., with higher elevations visited in the heat of the summer and lower environs visited earlier or later in the season.

You'll cover new trails each day which were established by Native Americans, pioneer herdsmen and outlaws. An elegant lodge will serve as your home for the daily forays deep into the wilderness. You'll experience ancient petroglyphs, slickrock mountains, slot-canyons, rock arches, buttes and spires with the descriptive names such as Cathedral Valley, The Mummy Cliffs and Circle Cliffs, Paradise, Hell's Hole, The Velvet Ridge, The Golden Throne, Pleasant Creek Falls, Deep Creek Gorge, Tantalus Canyon, and more.
