Canyonlands National Park ©
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.
Visit Island in the Sky and Monument Basin for their historical value. Take a break from the city and head to Mesa Arch and Double O Arch. Go for a jaunt from Canyonlands National Park to Arches National Park to see Tunnel Arch about 1h 15 min away. And it doesn't end there: explore the stunning scenery at The Needles, trek along Pothole Point Trail, explore the striking landscape at Upheaval Dome, and take some stellar pictures from Grand View Point Overlook.
