Canyonlands National Park, Utah

A colorful landscape eroded into countless canyons, mesas and buttes by the Colorado River and Green River, and their respective tributaries. The rivers divide the park into four districts: the Island in the Sky, the Needles, the Maze and the rivers themselves. While these areas share a primitive desert atmosphere, each retains its own character. The park covers 527.5 square miles. Canyons are carved into the Colorado Plateau by the Colorado River and Green River.

We decided to drive to the bottom of the canyon, there is one single track road that goes down 2000 feet. It was quite the rough scenic drive.
