Happy Birthday!

  A note to start:  Please click and enlarge the photos to fully enjoy these magnificent views, the bigger the better.

  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.
The Maze, canyons and plateaus aplenty.
