TOP 10 PLACES IN UTAH | (That Aren't National Parks)

TOP 10 PLACES IN UTAH | (That Aren't National Parks)

In this video I break down my top 10 favorite places in Utah, one of the most diverse, adventurous, and beautiful states in the countries. Filled with snow capped mountains, deserts, waterfalls, canyons, salt flats, and more, Utah has so many hidden gems. So much so that there is an endless amount to explore even past all of the national parks, which is why in this top 10 you won’t see any national parks featured!

    Good job!

  2. A.D. Vance on July 28, 2021 at 10:44 pm

    Stay the hell out of Utah, it’s a horrible place. We don’t want you here.

  3. Keston Hess on July 28, 2021 at 10:45 pm

    As a fellow Utahan you pronounced the names horribly but awesome vid everyone should check out these places

  4. Paul Sholar on July 28, 2021 at 10:46 pm

    No mention by you that Monument Valley is part of Native American reservation land.

  5. I choose Kind on July 28, 2021 at 10:47 pm

    Salt flats are so stinky! 😂

  6. Jerry T on July 28, 2021 at 10:47 pm

    Thank you a lot Kevin for introducing these wonderful places. I really like the view of Monument Valley at 10:37 in the video. It looks like John Ford’s point, but not the same. Where is it?

  7. Lucas Pickford on July 28, 2021 at 10:48 pm

    Ancient strip mining and giant tree harvesting operation.

  8. Talking Hands on July 28, 2021 at 10:48 pm

    Damn, definitely going to check some of those places out…

  9. I choose Kind on July 28, 2021 at 10:49 pm

    I can always tell when someone is not from Southern Utah. They don’t say it right. It’s really pronounced Hurricun.

  10. scott moore on July 28, 2021 at 10:49 pm

    It might be the kt boundary!

  11. Marilyn Ohlsson on July 28, 2021 at 10:49 pm

    You’re not showing the crazy "statues" in Goblin Valley!

  12. Mason Krangle on July 28, 2021 at 10:51 pm

    Great footage! Appreciate the share!

  13. Jason Unruh on July 28, 2021 at 10:53 pm

    Goblin, the earth was flooded(its in the bible) and those are the remainder of giants. Everything turns back to stone or dust. Literally everything. I can show you a tank from ww2 that is half stone half tank. Get on google earth and look around and you will discover faces. According to the book of enoch(which the bible quotes in the book of Jude) it states that the giants were 3000 ells tall. How many ft is 3000 ells? According to google 11,250ft. I’ve found giants spanning entire states and continents. But im sure you’re just gonna mock and call me crazy so this is where I say cheers. Open your eye…. and i mean your pineal gland

    Utah is exceptionally beautiful. We love living near Snow Canyon in southern Utah. Killer views!

  17. jacqueline schael on July 28, 2021 at 10:57 pm

    Fantastic job, Kevin! Thanks for the great ideas!

  18. David on July 28, 2021 at 10:57 pm

    The last place youve shown here , I went to and traveling and didnt know where I was going. I remember traveling in my old truck and going down this road.
    its was early in the morning and the sun had come up and it was so extremely hot. My front car tires had literally stripped the rubber away and I didnt know it. With very little money and no credit cards, I stopped at a minute market literally out in the middle of the nowhere. I looked at my one front tire and it was ripped to shreads. I didnt have a spare tire. I was truly fucked!!!!! All of a sudden , i got up enough nerve to ask if anyone could help. This lone guy in this old SUV gave way to my asking if he could help. He then said he lived on a reservation of a particular Indian site that was a few miles down the road. He said he had a near sized tire and a jack if I wanted to follow him. He said that i had just traveled the same road that forest gump had been filmed. Beautiful country and the road was so hot out there it was a place where the sun was on fire it was so hot.
    I followed and he lived on an old Indian reservation and sure enough he jacked it up and put the tire on.
    What an incredible blessing he was. He was such a big help.
    So I was able to make it to the nearest small town which ended up being a bout a hundred miles away. I finally made it to California , and actually had to buy more tires for my old truck along the way.

    Thank you 🙏🏼

    Thanks for watching! Check out my new video ‘Top 20 Places in Utah You Need to Visit’ where I dive deeper into the state and include national parks, state parks, the Uintas, & much more!

    The Curtis Formation overlies the Entrada, forming the greenish-gray
    caprock on the buttes east of the parking area. This formation takes
    its name from Curtis Point in the northern part of the San Rafael Swell.
    Fossils in locations outside the park show that the sandstone and siltstone comprising the Curtis was deposited in an ancient (Late Jurassic)
    sea. The greenish color comes from minor amounts of glauconite, a
    mineral that contains iron and forms in modern ocean sediments. The
    presence of glauconite in the Curtis Formation is significant because it
    further supports the idea that this rock unit was originally deposited in
    an ocean or sea. Another prominent feature of the Curtis Formation
    rock layers is the undulatory surfaces of small parallel ridges and hollows, called ripple marks.
    The type of ripple marks (see figure) displayed in the Curtis suggests that at least parts of this area were once a
    beach of this ancient sea.

    Goblin Valley is a best-kept secret. Nothing like it!

  23. AKPete on July 28, 2021 at 11:09 pm

    I can tell he’s not a local because of how he pronounced the cities and parks, but that okay 😉 Be-UTAH-ful!

  24. Richard Gladle on July 28, 2021 at 11:10 pm

  33. Eliseo Garza on July 28, 2021 at 11:21 pm

    What drone did you use for this video?

  34. Copisetic 1 on July 28, 2021 at 11:21 pm

    They are great if can find a parking place, and can wait in line to get on a trail. Or get a permit to go to the area. I’m native Utahn and I don’t vacation in Utah anymore. I stay away from anything that says NATIONAL or STATE.

  35. Photo Trekr on July 28, 2021 at 11:23 pm

    Thanks. Always looking for less crowded places.

    Utah has "hidden gems," but I’m going to f@ck that up with more self-promoting, brain dead videos to stampede the brain dead down on top of them. UTAH, LOVE IT AND LEAVE IT ALONE.

  40. Theseph Kind on July 28, 2021 at 11:28 pm

    This geology is covered in many high school geology classes/earth sciences.

  41. L McDonald on July 28, 2021 at 11:29 pm

    how could you miss Erda…..what a total miss

  42. Maxi Bon on July 28, 2021 at 11:29 pm

    Funny that’s it’s only drone footage that gives you false expression on all of this places. You not a fucking bird to see it from above.

  43. Vicki Depontes on July 28, 2021 at 11:31 pm

    I live here in Utah there are no negatives at all Utah is truly the best state

  44. Frances Pizzino on July 28, 2021 at 11:32 pm

  45. Mary Ann Bittle on July 28, 2021 at 11:33 pm

    Adding these to my bucket list… I need a bigger bucket, I think!

  46. Hoang Mai on July 28, 2021 at 11:35 pm

    Thanks for the tips places to visit in Utah. You must had permission to used the drone. Most of National Parks prohibited 🚫 for any drones at all.

  47. Dave on July 28, 2021 at 11:38 pm

    What areas of the badlands do you recommend for a day trip to see the rock formations? Like a good location/trail to start the journey

  48. Auto Worldzz on July 28, 2021 at 11:40 pm
