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.

Scenic landscape view of fresh fallen snow and dusted flatirons on the foothills of the Rocky Mountains in Boulder Colorado, Boulder County. Boulder has been referred to as the “Boulder Bubble” and “28 square miles surrounded by reality.”
Boulder’s Third Flatiron, which towers 1,400 feet high — a few hundred feet higher than the Empire State Building — has been climbed by people without using their hands, on roller skates, naked, and in 8 minutes (by separate climbers).
The Flatiron Mountains got their name by pioneer women who said they looked like flat, metal irons used to iron their clothes. Boulder is surrounded by more than 31,000 acres of recreational open space and nature preserves.

Bryce Canyon Utah views of this incredible canyon. Image number 24. Bryce Canyon National Park is located in southwestern Utah, USA. The major feature of the park is Bryce Canyon, which is not a canyon but a collection of giant natural amphitheaters along the eastern side of the Paunsaugunt Plateau. Bryce is distinctive due to geological structures called hoodoos, formed by frost weathering and stream erosion of the river and lake bed sedimentary rocks.
