I love to show you beautiful photos of our state, and there’s always plenty to see. Usually when you think of Utah, you picture sweeping vistas, stunning red-rock cliffs and powder-dusted alpine slopes. But sometimes, it’s the little spots that truly charm and delight. Here are 14 enchanting little gems. While some of them are bound to be familiar, you probably don’t even know that others exist.
1. Memory Grove Bridge
I've always loved this sweet little stone bridge at Memory Grove.
2. The Milky Way at Canyonlands
Stunning red rock bridges, the sky lit up with the stars in the Milky Way...what could be better?
3. Liberty Park Main Walkway
A stroll down this lovely, tree-lined walkway is always relaxing,
4. Thanksgiving Point Rose Garden

The mining-era buildings on Park City’s Main Street are historic, interesting and so cute.

When you find yourself on a sleigh, in the middle of a herd of elk, you can’t help but be charmed.
