UT, United States
Want to see Zion, rather than all the other people who want to see Zion? Head to the "upper" part of the Park, Kolob Canyons, and hike in to see Kolob Arch for yourself. This section is as glorious as the far more visited southern section of Zion, and Kolob Arch offers something better: beauty without all the people. This is a hiker's hike, so be prepared for anything from blisters to tarantulas to raincloud bursts as you explore the trail to one of the Northern Hemisphere's largest freestanding arches. Totally worth the effort if you're prepared.
