Step Into: Disney's The Lone Ranger

Disney' and Jerry Bruckheimer's new twist on the classic action Western film The Lone Ranger opened nationwide yesterday, starring Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer.

Most of the film's scenes were shot in the wild and vast landscapes of Utah. So trekking through this great Western state is as close as you can get to feeling like you were actually in the movie. (That and walking around with a black mask on. Or face paint.) Monument Valley, Arches National Park, the Colorado River, Canyonlands National Park, and the outdoor-adventure lovers' city of Moab—not to mention the state's gorgeous red-rock arches and boulders—are thrust into the spotlight in this film. It's easy to see why: this state is home to five national parks, seven national monuments, two national recreation areas, and 43 state parks.
