3) Deserts of Utah
While a hot sandy desert may not be your cup of tea for a summer’s day many parts of Utah are a climber’s paradise such as Moab and Zion National Park. If you bring the pups along a Crazy Creek chair turned into a bed is a great option. Make sure to bring gallons of water as that heat is no joke! A great destination for any time of the year Zion National Park in southwest Utah is full of canyon cliffs to hike off and climb your day away. Take note of the weather each day and get an early start to avoid the mid-day heat.

4) Longs Peak, Colorado
Longs Peak in Colorado is a popular 14er (a mountain peak with an elevation of at least 14,000 feet) for locals and tourists alike. Seen in the distance in the picture above the peak remains bare as only small shrubs can grow at this altitude and resist the wind that comes with it. Above 13,000 feet all the routes to the summit require scrambling over difficult and exposed terrain. Many hikes in the Colorado Mountains require some adjustment as altitude sickness can play into effect. If you are flying or driving in from lower elevation make sure to give yourself time to adjust to the altitude and terrain.
