Kane County named to list of Best Spring Trips by National Geographic Travel
National Geographic Travel has included Kane County on its list of Best Spring Trips 2014.
Recommendations include visiting the Amazing Earthfest, trying the Kanab-a-Dabba-Doo Burger at the Rocking V Cafe, and buying hiking gear at Willow Canyon Outdoor.
The first paragraph of the article reads:
Kane County sits in the middle of southwestern Utah’s staggering geological smorgasbord: narrow slot canyons, polychrome cliffs, wavelike buttes, and world-class paleontological sites. From Kanab, the county seat, it’s 90 minutes or less to three national parks – Grand Canyon, Bryce Canyon and Zion, Glen Canyon National Recreation Area, Coral Pink Sand Dunes State Park, and the rugged and remote 1.9-million-acre Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument, the last area in the continental United States to be mapped.
“What strikes people when they visit is the intensity of the outdoor experience available here,” says Kanab custom furniture maker Rich Csenge. “There’s staggering natural beauty, trailheads everywhere, and the sense of eternity expressed in geology and topography that seems to change color and shape with every hour of the day.”
