You can also rent one of nine yurts for a camping experience that combines the fun of tent camping with some of the luxuries of a hotel room. In this episode, we’re coming to you from inside one of those yurts, and we’ll discuss what it was like spending the night here, plus everything you’d want to know about the park and our experience driving the nearby, infamous Shafer Trail.

  • What is the Shafer Trail and what kind of a vehicle do you need to drive it
  • Why we had to race to the top of Canyonlands to find a park ranger
  • How Dead Horse Point got its name
  • What are the yurts like on the inside
