Explore Yant Flat (Candy Canyon)

Well guess what, that place not only exists, but we just spent the weekend there and it was jaw dropping. The place I’m referring to is …

Sand Mountain | Little Sahara Adventures

The mountains of Utah are incredible. From the red cliffs of Moab, to the snow capped peaks in the Cottonwoods, they all offer some thing uniquely different to everyone. But when I came out to Salt Lake to visit my friend Luke last November, we took a spontaneous trip to somewhere neither of us had been before. That trip lead us down desert roads to probably one of the smallest mountain ranges in Utah. I’m talking about Sand Mountain, located in the Little Sahara Recreation Area. Getting here wasn’t difficult, but it was different. Hopping off the highways and onto …

The only time that many people review a trail, or anything for that matter, it’s usually something super easy and perfect for the out-of-shape, family-friendly hikers. For those hikes, which commonly get described as a 1-mile trail, entirely flat, and finishes at a pretty waterfall. However, this …
