Where Your Kids Will Take Theirs

FACT: With 44 state parks, 5 national parks and a dozen other national monuments, Utah has the highest concentration of childhood memories.

You put olives on your fingers and peas up your nose every Thanksgiving because your cousin did one year and it was comedy gold. You go to Moab every spring because you still remember how it felt the first time you rolled out of your tent to a red-rock sunrise. You don't plan family traditions. They just happen.

Utah adventures (hiking, skiing, boating, playing hide & seek with goblins, etc.) have a weird ability to keep you coming back – for generations, even. What family photo will your great-grandkids recreate? Got an awesome/funny/nostalgic Utah travel pic? Give us your best shot.
