Travel: Canyonlands National Park, Utah
By Robert Ellis
Canyonlands National Park in Utah is split into three districts. The Maze, Island in the Sky, and the Needles. Our first National Park visit on this trip would be to the "Needles". Due to its distance from Arches in Moab, the Needles, Capital Reef and Maze are least visited, oftentimes altogether just skipped over...with Arches and Island in the Sky receiving the most visitors. We are glad we took the extra time and effort to visit it. It is a true gem of a National Park...and a lot less crowded! One of our favorite Parks on this trip.
On the way to the park, we experienced the Blue Mountains. Overnighting in the town of Monticello, Utah, put us a lot closer to the Needles, and that in turn allowed for a full day of hiking and exploring.
It was a healthy uphill hike to get to the spot from which this pic was taken. A total of 5.4 miles of moderate hiking, round trip...to experience the Needles up and close.
Note: We'll be posting photos from Robert's latest trip over the next week or so. Bookmark this page for more photos, and links to the other installments. --Pen
