Outside Together with Dan and Chelle

We’re back again with our Outside Together series, ready to highlight an epic Lake Powell getaway alongside travel photographers Dan and Chelle! At Under Canvas, we believe that being outdoors inspires and connects friends, families, and loved ones. When you disconnect from modern life, you’re able to connect with your best outdoor self, your family, your loved ones, and the natural splendor around you. In the spirit of getting Outside Together, we’re connecting with a few of our past guests to revisit their stays at Under Canvas and gain an inside look at their experiences stepping outside with us.

This time around, we’re excited to showcase a stay at our newest Utah location, Under Canvas Lake Powell-Grand Staircase—with Daniel and Michelle Madsen, the incredible photo and video duo behind @danandchelle on Instagram and Youtube. Traveling to our Lake Powell-Grand Staircase location to celebrate Chelle’s birthday, along with their adorable maltipoo, Louie…the pair had a lot to say about our incredible tent features (be sure to watch their full tent tour!), as well as the amazing things to do in the area, including getting out on the water, exploring Horseshoe Bend, and more!

We absolutely loved having Dan and Chelle (and Louie!) at Under Canvas and couldn’t wait to learn a bit more about their getaway to Lake Powell! Here’s what we discovered:
