CANYONLANDS NATIONAL PARK MAP

Canyonlands offers a vastly different experience even though its only across the valley from the more famous Arches National Park.

Starting in Moab, we travel to the Island in the Sky District continuing along Grand View Point Road. Enthusiastic photographers should get up early if the want to capture Canyonlands’ most famous image – sunrise through Mesa Arch.  If we start later in the day, arrange your time so you are still in the Park for a spectacular sunset.

Along the way we’ll examine perplexing elements at Upheaval Dome and how this has led to two different theories behind Utah’s “belly button”.    A view to the Merrimac and Monitor Buttes will have you imagining them as the American Civil War armor plated ships, or ironclads, that they resemble. Gaze down into the depths at Green River Outlook carved by the unrelenting Colorado and Green Rivers.  Those fit and properly prepared should hike the Aztec Butte Trail to view ancestral Puebloan structures called granaries.

For those with limited mobility Canyonlands offers many easily accessible scenic viewpoints, and each one adds to understanding how this is an island in the sky.

The tour ends on the drive back to Moab.
