Zion National Park Utah

The National Parks around the United States have often been called our nation’s best idea, and I certainly agree. Although I have many more left to visit, the ones I have been lucky enough to spend time in exploring haven’t just been nice experiences, they’ve been transformational. And, ultimately, that’s the true power of any National Park, to make us better versions of ourselves.

I recently had the opportunity to explore Utah’s Mighty Five on an easy road trip across Southern Utah, done in partnership with Marriott International, The Americas. In order to help share the magic of these parks, as well as offer incredible travel tips, I’ve interviewed rangers and other experts at each of the five parks all of whom are guests on this week’s episode.
