Canyonlands National Park

Canyonlands National Park is made up of three districts separated by the two rivers merging in its center: the Colorado River and the Green River. Each district has its own distinctive flavor: Island in the Sky and Dead Horse Point (a Utah State Park close to Canyonlands) form a vast peninsula overlooking the canyons and is easy to visit. To the southeast, the Needles district is remarkable for the diversity of its geological features and requires a lot of hiking or 4-wheeling. To the west, the Maze district is wild and desolate and visiting its intricate network of canyons and mesas is only for the most adventurous. The Island in the Sky district is the most accessible for travelers, and all the photographs in this gallery are from this district.
