Canyonlands is known for its unique and diverse landscape, which includes towering mesas, deep canyons, and vast deserts. The park covers over 337,000 acres and is divided into four districts: the Island in the Sky, the Needles, the Maze, and the rivers, each with its own unique geologic features and recreational opportunities. Visitors to Canyonlands National Park can enjoy activities such as hiking, camping, scenic drives, mountain biking, and river running.
Catching the sunrise at Mesa Arch is something everyone on a southwest road trip should add to their bucketlist. The early morning light makes the arch and the canyon behind glow as if it's on fire & is mesmerizing to see.
