These Watercolor Mountains Hiding In Utah Will Take Your Breath Away

The incredible Paria Canyon is a sight that many Utahns never witness; it’s in a remote part of the state. Part of the Paria Canyon/Vermilion Canyon Permit Area, the canyon is overseen by the Bureau of Land Managment, and straddles the Utah/Arizona border. Though it’s incredibly remote and rough, the canyon is well worth your time – you’ll enjoy the most beautiful palette of colors you’ve ever seen.
