Depart the glittering neon gulch of Sin City for the gorgeous wonderland that is Zion National Park. Marvel at the graceful slot canyons, towering cliffs and awe-inspiring monoliths, all carved out over 200 million years from the orange sandstone. Then it's onward to Bryce Canyon, home to the world's largest concentration of hoodoos, those tall limestone spires that rise majestically from the desert floor.
Leave the red rock canyons and travel north to Utah's capital. See the famed Temple Square, home to the renowned Mormon Tabernacle Choir. This evening, perhaps enjoy an optional visit to Mormon founder Brigham Young's former home, and an optional dinner at the Roof Restaurant, Utah's premier gormet dining location.
You could spend a year in Yellowstone and still only scratch the surface of its wonders. Today, explore the impressive Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone with its stunning waterfalls and a chance to see wandering herds of bison, elk and even the occasional grizzly bear. You'll have the chance to stroll the boardwalks to view more of the park's fantastical geothermal activity—and no trip to Yellowstone is complete without a sighting of Old Faithful as its waters arc up to 100 feet (30 metres) into the air. This evening, relax under the great basin of stars in one of the country's most beautiful wild places.
After saying goodbye to Billings, the Magic City, your day begins with a visit to Little Bighorn National Monument, site of the infamous battlefield where the ill-fated Custer led his men against a battalion of Sioux and Cheyenne warriors. Then, travel east through the rolling mountains of the Black Hills on your way to Rapid City. The evening is at leisure; relax at your hotel or take some time to explore downtown Rapid City.
Discover the natural and man-made wonders of the Black Hills with a drive through stunning scenery on your way to visit Mount Rushmore and the Crazy Horse Memorial, a mountain carving of the famed war chief of the Lakota people. You'll gaze in awe at this towering tribute still being worked on today. Return to Rapid City this afternoon before gathering with your Travel Director and fellow travellers for a festive Farewell Dinner.
Say so long to your newfound friends this morning and take a transfer to Denver International Airport for your flight home. This is the end of your tour but it doesn't have to be the end of your adventure. You may decide to extend your stay and head over the California or fly over to one of the Hawaiian Islands for a few days.
