Canyonlands National Park
This is Utah's largest National Park. It is a rugged high desert of rock with spectacular formations and gorges carved over the centuries by the Colorado and Greed rivers. Island in the Sky District , in the northern section of the park between the Colorado and Green Rivers, overlooking some 10,000 square miles of rugged wilderness. Thank goodness for the Cairns marking the trails.
Mesa Arch Trail. An interesting walk through an area of pinon, and juniper trees, mountain mahogany, cactus and a plant called MormonTea. The arch is made of Navajo sandstone and hangs precariously on the ridge of a 500 ft cliff, framing a spectacular view of nearby mountains.
Dick enjoying the views.
Even the trees bend to look like arches.
