The California Bucket List: Your daily guide to the best adventures and experiences in the Golden State

Moab, Utah

The bluffs and hills of Moab, a mountain biking hub and home to Arches National Park, are as red as sunburn and barren — save for a few juniper trees and clumps of rabbit brush, according to L.A. Times staff writer Hugo Martin. The 2,000 sandstone arches of the namesake park are the stars of any trip to Moab. L.A. Times staff photographer Mark Boster took these images.
