Photo Journal: Southern Utah with Friends

What happens when you get a group of friends together to do a Moterra trip?

Utah is one of our favorite places to travel because of its diverse and dramatic landscapes. Within a few hours of two of our hubs (Salt Lake City or Las Vegas) you can be within striking distance of high alpine peaks, stunning canyons, vast deserts and everything in between. 

We called it “The Southern Migration” and had an absolute blast on this long weekend trip through southern Utah with the entire Moterra team. We did a one-way trip from Salt Lake City to Las Vegas in our Pop Top Moterra Sprinter vans which sleep 4 people – perfect for family or group trips.

Although fall is our favorite time to go, there is NO bad time to explore this unique part of the world.

We love settling into the routine of “life on the open road” where even the simplest things like cooking dinner, making a campfire, and making music, not screen time, become the focal points and highlights of the day.

For us there is no time better spent than making memories with friends and family – call us biased because we ARE!

We loved doing this trip from the comfort of our Moterra Sprinter Vans because no matter if its rain or shine, hot or cold, we’re guaranteed to have a cozy place to hang, to cook and to sleep!

We also like that our vans are equipped for adventures and come with optional add-ons so that you can play the way you want to – whether thats by foot, mountain bike, or something different.

Some of the highlights for us were the dramatic landscapes of canyon country, the trail time, the company, unique roadside attractions and being serenaded by our talented friends.

And incase you were wondering, Trevor does have the voice of an angel.

This trip wasn’t tough to plan and is for ANYone – whether you’re an experienced traveler or not. In fact, we feel like this is ONE OF THE BEST PLACES to explore if you’re new to traveling in a campervan because of all the access to wild spaces to explore and camp in.

We hope that YOU get to enjoy a trip to this beautiful part of the country as well.

And when you do, please let us know how it went! We’d love to hear about it.
