At Moab Under Canvas, a very nice glamping resort in the eastern Utah desert, you can expect deep canyons, towering plateaus and untouched landscapes that wouldn’t look out of place in a Western movie.
Sitting a few miles away from the old mining town of Moab, this glamping spot is positioned neatly between two national parks, Arches National Park and Canyonlands National Park, hence its pretty spectacular views.
While there’s not a saloon in sight, there is a selection of safari-style tents and teepees scattered along the eastern Utah desert to help campers get into that Old West kinda lifestyle. To bring things into the 21st century, the camp offers luxury bedding and linen and an adjacent bathroom with hot showers, flushing toilets and spa products.
For meals the camp serves up a breakfast of smothered spice burritos and smoked-salmon bagels, and provides packed picnic lunches for day trips – cute!
Moab Under Canvas is actually a great launching point for a range of outdoor activities like hiking and mountain biking, 4×4 off-roading, horse riding, hot air ballooning and river rafting. But with views like this, why would you even want to leave?
Does anyone else feel a sudden urge to yell “yeehaw”?
