September 12, 1964 was the date of birth for Canyonlands National Park. It's located near Moab, Utah and encompasses a lot in its 357,000 plus acres.
The Green River and Colorado River have carved deep into the Colorado Plateau to leave what from the air must appear to be a maze. The canyons are but one part of this wonderful place.
There are areas with some greenery but here in this country they are sparse and few.
About half a million visitors come each year to see the wonders or hike and camp, I think I'd wear sturdy boots out here but I'm a sissy.
Enlarge the photos and enjoy.
This is entry 1201, sometimes that feels like a long time, others not so much.
