Yup, no need to develop a plan for how to spend your days, others have done that planning for you! Every year, the Amazing Earthfest takes place the third week in May and offers a sample of the rich cultural and natural world surrounding the area of Kanab, Utah. May 13 is the kickoff date for the 6th annual festival. Last year, I participated in a group hike within the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument that took us through the stunning Paria Canyon and to an incredible sea of color on a picture-perfect day.
