Right on the border of Arizona and Utah, the Amangiri Resort is a place all of its own, on a time all of its own. The six hundred acres of the resort teeter between Mountain Standard and Pacific Time, and everything holds still in this dramatic backdrop. The word “Amangiri” sums it all up—peaceful mountain.
To get oriented with the spectacular topography and to get a better idea of just how grand this location is, arrange a helicopter tour.
The food is unbelievable and locally sourced as much as possible. For a more rustic experience, schedule a dinner amongst the campfire, and watch the sunset from the Raven’s Nest.
To learn more about the area’s Native history, hike the Rock Art Tour where you’ll see ancient pictographs and hieroglyphs. Artists have been known to make the hike to draw inspiration for their own canvasses.
My favorite part of this trip was hiking the slot canyons. Nothing beats Mother Nature and her keen attention to detail. Her loving hands create living art to be deeply inhaled and relived again and again, never the same way twice.
End your vacation with a boat ride around Lake Powell, taking it all in from a different point of view.
Inspire your soul this winter and start off 2015 full of adventure and rejuvenation at Amangiri.
