"Our first trip with The Commonwealth Club turned out to be one of the best trips we'd ever taken in our many years of world travel. We experienced an unforgettably wonderful slice of culture that far exceeded our expectations, due to The Club's relationships with chefs and winemakers in Spain."
Utah’s National Parks, with National Park Ranger Frank Ackerman
Explore history, ecology and scenery in five national parks and monuments on the Colorado Plateau.
Experience the dramatic cliffs of Zion and the hoodoos of Bryce Canyon. Hike amid multi-hued cliffs, spires, and arches of Cedar Breaks; the Waterpocket fold of Capitol Reef; and slot-canyons in Grand Staircase-Escalante, the “newest” park, designated in 1996. Visit Anasazi State Park, which features an anthropology museum and the excavated site of a thousand-year-old Anasazi village.
Learn about federal policies that have led to notably different development of these parks. Former Park Ranger Frank Ackerman leads our trip.
