Itinerary Summary

Arrival St. George, 1 night; coach to Zion National Park, 1 night; coach to Bryce Canyon, 1 night; coach to Moab, 2 nights; coach to Page, AZ, 1 night; coach to St. George, 1 night; departure.



Coordinated by Dixie State University.




St. George

The largest city in south-central Utah is at the center of the region's arches, mesas, pinnacles and buttes, in close proximity to Zion, Bryce, and Grand Canyon national parks, as well as Lake Powell and prehistoric archaeological sites.



Bryce Canyon National Park

Bryce Canyon, famous for its unique geology, consists of a series of horseshoe-shaped amphitheaters carved from the eastern edge of the Paunsaugunt Plateau in southern Utah. Erosion and rainwater have shaped the colorful limestone rock into bizarre shapes including slot canyons, windows, fins and spires called "hoodoos."



Capitol Reef National Park

This geologically unique area was called the “Land of the Sleeping Rainbow” by the Navajo because of the brilliantly colored canyon walls, though a line of white, dome-shaped rocks informs the park’s official name.



Moab

Site of a busy Colorado River crossing before the construction of the railroads, the town of Moab grew into an important mining community with the discovery of potash, manganese, oil and gas deposits in the early 1900s. Today Moab is a gateway to Arches and Canyonlands national parks and a popular base for mountain bikers and off-roaders.



Zion National Park

True to its name, which means "refuge" or "sanctuary" in ancient Hebrew, Zion is an oasis at the junction of the Colorado Plateau, Great Basin and Mojave Desert provinces, encompassing sandstone canyons and colorful, high plateaus.



Accommodations
Lodges and inns convenient to National Parks; most feature pools.

Road Scholar Instructors
These instructors are participating on at least one date of this program. Please note that changes may occur.
Duke Breitenbach

Duke Breitenbach has had an interest in photography since his youth, ever since a Boy Scout photography merit badge class opened his eyes to the darkroom and beyond. After retiring from a 35-year long career as an engineer in the U.S. Navy, photography became his principle hobby. He lived in northern Idaho during the summers and the west coast of Florida in the winters, and became an active member in the Dimage photo club in Sarasota during the transition from film to digital. After being persuaded that digital imaging was the new technology, he taught numerous digital photo classes in Florida. Duke had always envisioned Utah as an ultimate photography destination, and moved to St. George in 2006 where he quickly became affiliated with the Color Country Camera Club (CCCC) and the Institute for Continued Learning (ICL) at Dixie State University. Duke teaches digital photography classes for ICL and leads photo shoot trips. He is primarily a landscape photographer.
