Canyonlands National Park features myriad canyons and buttes that the Colorado River, Green River, and their tributaries have carved over millions of years in hues of red and orange.
On the 23rd (Thu), explore the striking landscape at Island in the Sky, then take in the dramatic natural features at Mesa Arch, and then take some stellar pictures from Grand View Point Overlook. Keep things going the next day: get to know the fascinating history of Monument Basin, then take in breathtaking views at The Needles, and then hike along Pothole Point Trail.
