My brief visit to Canyonlands National Park was confined to the “Island in the Sky,” a high mesa that serves as an observation platform. I didn’t get to hike any trail or ride into the backcountry due to time limitations. Instead, I was treated to a grand view of the Canyonlands from my perch in the sky. What I saw was out of this world. It was a bright sunny day in April 2012 and the Canyonlands popped with color – primarily red, orange and blue. I drove all the way to the Grand View Point Overlook with many stops along the way to survey the landscape below. I’ve been to the Grand Canyon and, frankly, Canyonlands is just as impressive. I’ll be back.
