LACONIA — Bank of New Hampshire recently traveled with 88 Prestige Plus customers and visited five of America's National Parks.
The tour began in Scottsdale, Arizona, and then headed north to Sedona with its amazing rock formations and artist colony, before ending at Lake Powell where the group visited the Glen Canyon Dam.
A highlight of the National Parks tour was the spectacular Grand Canyon, where Prestige Plus members enjoyed the rustic cabins on the North Rim and the beautiful sunset and sunrise offering magnificent views overlooking the canyon.
The next stop included two very distinct and equally beautiful National Parks, Zion and Bryce. Zion National Park takes you down into the park where the huge red and white sandstone cliffs rise above you in sheer magnitude and color. Bryce National Park in contrast is seen from the side of the cliffs and the formations, called Hoodoos, with their natural orange and red hues, are a beautiful sight that resembles castle spires.
Next was the beautiful "City of Saints," Salt Lake City where members enjoyed Temple Square and saw the 6-spired granite Salt Lake Temple. Prestige Plus members went on to enjoy a tour of downtown Salt Lake City and the Great Salt Lake.
From Utah, the tour entered Wyoming and the cowboy town of Jackson Hole. Jackson Hole is a mecca for shopping, art, river rafting and hiking. The trip would not be complete without a visit to Jackson's famous Million Dollar Cowboy Bar with its iconic "saddle" bar stools.
Passing through the Grand Teton National Park was a highlight for the Prestige Plus members. The Grand Tetons rise to 13,770 feet and is the youngest range in the Rockies. The snow covered peaks of the Grand Tetons made for beautiful viewing and many photographs.
The final days of the National Parks tour traveled to the amazing Yellowstone National Park, where the group was greeted by the work-famous Old Faithful Geyser. The tour ended with a stay in South Dakota and visits to the Buffalo Bill Historical Center, The Crazy Horse Monument and the great symbol of the United States, Mount Rushmore.
