Canyonlands Utah Sunrise

 

This was one of the last stops on our road trip from Colorado to Arizona and back again through Utah.  We ended here at night and woke up to this beautiful scenic landscape.

Canyonlands National Park is  located in southeastern Utah near the town of Moab. It preserves a colorful landscape eroded into countless canyons, mesas, and buttes by the Colorado River, the Green River, and their respective tributaries. Legislation creating the park was signed into law by President Lyndon Johnson on September 12, 1964

The park is divided into four districts: the Island in the Sky, the Needles, the Maze, and the rivers themselves. While these areas share a primitive desert atmosphere, each retains its own character. Two large river canyons are carved into the Colorado Plateau by the Colorado River and Green River.

Weird fact: Nineteenth century cowboys corralled wild horses onto today’s Dead Horse Point State Park. Supposedly, one herd left on the point died of thirst.

Scientific fact: Cataract Canyon may be one of the world’s most actively filling canyons. Scientists discovered 260 feet of sediment below the water’s surface.
