If you just open the map and look at it, it seems like a long way to go to get to the Needles Disrtrict of Canyonlands.

The drive to the Needles part of Canyonlands National Park is as much fun as the park itself. It is a very well maintained road that goes from high meadows to amazing cliffs and views. Set aside a half day, pack a lunch, and bring loads of water, it is well worth the drive.

The road is long but the rock formations are beautiful. This trip takes half a day but I would not miss it. Be sure to take plenty if drinking water. It is hot even in September.
