|Here We Go! Canyonlands National Park!|
We weren't sure what to expect at Canyonlands National Park. If I had to sum it up, I would say: It's like a smaller version of the Grand Canyon, but it's much more than that. Certainly worth the effort, and I am really glad we were able to include it in this trip. You must go see it.
|I told Dad, you can only take a photo if there is one of us IN IT.|
The weather app on my phone told us that our unseasonably beautiful weather was not going to last, so inevitably our thoughts were turning to trying to maximize our hiking opportunities and planning accordingly. The National Parks system has done an outstanding job of making most of the most stunning highlights of the parks accessible by car and only a short to moderate hike. This was a blessing this trip as we were trying to cover a lot of ground while the sun was shining. The weather is usually great here, but the winters are not to be trifled with. Powerful wind storms with rain and snow threatening kept us thinking of being efficient.
|Yes, he really is standing on the edge of infinity... It was hair-raising|
|Beautiful sites, but small, no hookups of any kind.|
Tomorrow we hit Arches National Park!
