Utah has so many beautiful sights and this is a must do when staying at or near Moab. It can be fitted in with the Dead Horse Point State Park, awe inspiring in itself.

For the best views, take Potash Road (see separate review) North of Moab and enter the Park from the back, the views are much more interesting. What is distant ideas from the paved road in the park, turns into overwhelming and inspiring beauty surrounding you while you drive among the formations and canyons.

This is a really big park and the distances to get from one to another of the areas make it impossible to visit all three areas in a short time.

Although we had planned to visit Canyonlands National Park during our trip, it was surprising just how vast and how many viewing opportunities were available just by stepping out of the car.

The park has to areas, Island in the Sky and the Needles.. Upheaval dome is awesome. If you liked Bryce canyon you will like the needles. Elephant Hill trail is excellent. The hike to Devils Kitchen is fun, but the hike out is a boring walk along a 4 wheel drive trail.

Places to stop and hike or just stand and look. Good signage to get the traveler from place to place. Very nice visitor center.

Standing where the Green and Colorado Rivers combine...you finally get just how insignificant we really are in the face of all this grandeur. AMAZING. Stop by the visitor center for one of the ranger talks...they are just so knowledgeable
