Canyonlands national park

Canyonlands National Park is at the heart of the Colorado Plateau. It was carved by the Green and Colorado Rivers. Surrounding the rivers are three very differnt regions, Island in the sky (north), the Maze (west), and the Needles (east). Gary and I toured Island in the Sky. It was a rainy afternoon so wasn't able to get very many pictures of part of the park. Gary and enjoyed our tour and plan on going again. We would like to see the Needles section. We stayed at Archview Campground in Moab, Utah.

This formataion is known as the Monitor and Merrimac named after two civil war ships.
