Colorado Plateau - High Plateaus Ride

Colorado Plateau - High Plateaus Ride
Utah USA

To overlook the canyon lands from Utah's High Plateaus is a remarkable experience where the phrase "I can see for two -hundred miles" is not a figure of speech. When summer's heat in the slickrock country becomes oppressive, the lure of glacial lakes and lush meadows beckon both horse and rider. This trailride explores the plateau tops where the San Rafael Swell, Capitol Reef National Park and Grand Staircase/Escalante National Monument make their dramatic break towards the Colorado River.

From a deluxe basecamp you'll make daily rides deeper into this alpine wilderness. Always a favorite feature of this ride are the lakes, wildflowers, elk, deer, and other wildlife, as well as the spectacular vistas of the 4-Corners region where ten or more National Parks and Monuments may be seen in a single panorama.

The Colorado Plateau is shaped by the Colorado River system as it runs from the Rocky Mountains to the Gulf of California and was the last explored region of the continental United States. This broad expanse of rugged, colorful tablelands encompassing much of Utah, Colorado, New Mexico and Arizona (the 4-Corners area) is bounded by the Grand Canyon on the south and Uintah Basin on the north.
