Fall is an incredible time to visit Utah’s amazing red-rock canyons. In September and October, as the intensity of summer is waning and fall beckons, Canyonlands Field Institute (CFI) of Moab, Utah is offering numerous 6-day guided land and river trips for Elderhostel participants. Those age 55 and older can immerse themselves into the landscape by canoeing the Green River (Sept. 16-21 or 23-28) or rafting the San Juan River (Oct.2-8) for six wondrous days. If sleeping next to a serene river, wedged deeply between red rock walls and under the stars is not your style, a 6-day motel based tour of Monument Valley and the Navajo Nation reveals the spirit of canyon country October 21-27.
