Island in the Sky - Canyonlands National Park, Utah

Grand View, Canyonlands National Park, Utah

In case you are wondering why so many Moab area photos are showing up on the blog, I am finally beginning to go through all of the images I shot in 2014. You can tell how far behind I am as this is from March and I will probably spend most of the winter hopefully catching up. This image is from Canyonlands National Park. The park is divided into three main sections: Island in the Sky, the Needles and the Maze. The most accessible section is Islands in the Sky and is where most visitors visit. The Needles is a bit less accessible, but still not that hard to get to as long as you don't mind driving. The Maze is very remote and a four-wheel drive is a must. Not for the faint of heart which is why I haven't visited that section of the park.

This particular photo was taken from the Islands in the Sky section from the Grand View Overlook. As you can see, the overlook is aptly named. The orange sandstone is a staple of the American Southwest and is always beautiful to see. Our group shot this in the morning hours and if you look very closely, you will see one of us in the distance (Rad - that is you!) along the edge composing a shot.
