East Desert

The Eastern High Desert zone includes unique desert landscapes. It's a place where dinosaurs once roamed, a place with terrain that is similar to the planet Mars or our very own moon. This region was once the hide-out for famous outlaws, and offers access to the western edge of Canyonlands National Park. Hollywood has recently used this region again as the back-drop for two new exciting movies; Disney's John Carter of Mars, and 127 Hours.

From here you'll also have access to the Henry Mountains with its large herd of free roaming buffalo, and Lake Powell with over 2,000 miles of shoreline. Visitors to the upper sections of Lake Powell and the eastern edge of Canyonlands National Park can use this region for lodging, dining and other services.
