Canyonlands National Park
Canyonlands National Parks sits on a 1,000 feet tall sandstone plateau. The park preserves 337,598 acres of colorful canyons, mesas, buttes, fins, arches, and in the middle of southeast Utah's highest dessert. Overall, this park was much less crowded than Arches National Park, but honestly just as nice. Wide open spaces, lots of parking areas to jet out and explore, hiking and walking paths galore, and Mesa Arch... what more could we ask for?!
We visited the famous Mesa Arch, Island in the Sky Green River Overlook, Buck Canyon Overlook, and Grand View Point Overlook.
Each overlook presents different perspective on the parks landscape. Fantastic place for panorama views. We enjoyed the hike to and from Mesa Arch. The hike leads to the famous cliff edge. Take a look at our photo tour below!
