“Unworldly landscape”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

You have to see it to understand. Looks like you just landed on Mars! A lot of it not accessible unless you go off road (by vehicle or hike).

“Only the Grand Canyon Comes Close ...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

WOW! Be sure to spend time at Island in the Sky - it will get your attention - with 2500 ft straight drops all around it's not for folks with fears of heights. It is spectacular though!

“It's BIG, but you'll love it for its bigness!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

You will not be able to "see" the Canyonland NP in a day or even two, but any amount of time you can spend in the park will be rewarding. It is so vast and so impossible to photograph in its vastness that you must put your camera down, take time to simply look and engage your senses.

“A small taste of grand vistas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

The weather was threatening, cloudy and cool however the vistas which are so different from nearby Arches did not disappoint.
The Range talk was amazing. She used her selection of music to convey the geological history of the canyon. Her passion and quality presentation made sitting in the cold and wind worth every minute. I think her name was Wendy I would like to commend her (she was a nurse then science teacher). As an ex-teacher she was born to be a ranger and a geologist at that. Well Done National Park Service Ranger
