RAV4 overlanding near Zion
Our first foray during our month in southern Utah.
We’ve started our nomad year in earnest and our second stop after Bozeman, Montana, is good ol’ La Verkin, Utah. This puts us in a great position to make sorties into the twisting and bizarre red rock formations near Zion National Park. We didn’t have a plan on our first weekend here other than getting onto some red dirt roads to test out our RAV4 and all the new gear. This is a bit of a gear-focused video, but we’ll also show you a great camping spot on BLM land if you find yourself in the area and a great hike to do the next day in Kolob Canyon.
