Most People Don’t Know This Small Utah Town Is Right In The Middle Of Our National Parks

Some say that the little town of Kanab is in the middle of nowhere. Depending on how you look at it, that could be considered correct. Situated just seven miles north of the Arizona border, Kanab was once almost completely cut off from the rest of the world. To the east, the Colorado River kept travelers at bay. Rough, dirt roads provided the only access from other directions, and short 20-mile trips could take several days. Luckily, US-89 was built, and visitors quickly saw what the residents of Kanab already knew – this place is surrounded on all sides by pure beauty. Take a look at what Kanab has to offer.

I’m willing to bet that if you’ve done much traveling in Utah, you’ve visited Kanab at least once. What do you love about this little town?
