Canyonlands National Park, Utah

Canyonlands is accessible from the southeast or from the north, many miles away. The park encompasses over 500 square miles of land, a large part of it is inaccessible. The Colorado River meanders through the eastern portion, although not visible from most of the improved portions of the park.

These rocks are sandstone and look as if they had been sculpted.

The area I visited consisted mostly of huge rock formations - again, think the size of big buildings -   although off in the distance, through the haze, I could see large colorful mesas.  I will be visiting the larger, northern portion of the park when I move further north. I'm looking forward to that, since it's a larger accessible area, and there is more to explore. In the meantime, I hope you enjoy the view.
