Canyonlands

Here are a few images from my recent trip to Canyonlands National Park. Canyonlands is divided in three sections by the conjunction of the Green and Colorado Rivers. The central section, nearest to Moab and easiest to get to, is sometimes called Island in the Sky. The southeastern section is the Needles, and the southwestern section contains the Maze.

On this trip, we were based in Moab, Utah and able to visit the Island in the Sky (central) and Needles (southeast) sections of the park. On a previous trip, years ago, I spent time exploring the Maze (southwest) section, which is little harder to get into than the other two areas.

I certainly hope to get back and spend some more time in the Canyonlands backcountry; all three sections of this wonderful and remote park are absolutely brilliant.
