Canyonlands National Park

Canyonlands National Park lies in central Utah surrounding the confluence of the Colorado and the Green Rivers. The three districts of the park separated by the confluence of the rivers are Island in the Sky to the north, Needles to the southeast, and Maze to the southwest. In addition, there is an isolated unit to the west containing Horseshoe Canyon, site of what is arguably the best petroglyph panel in the Southwest.

The images appearing here were taken in the more accessible Needles and Island in the Sky districts. The Island in the Sky images were taken at points less than one mile from the network of paved roads. The Needles images were taken in a hike to Chesler Park from the end of a narrow gravel road.
