Canyonlands National Park is located in southeastern Utah near the town of Moab.  Canyonlands preserves a colorful landscape eroded into countless canyons, mesas and buttes by the Colorado River, the Green River, and their respective tributaries.  The park is divided into four districts: the Island in the Sky, the Needles, the Maze, and the rivers themselves.  While these areas share a primitive desert atmosphere, each retains its own character. The park covers 527.5 square miles.  Author Edward Abbey, a frequent visitor, described the Canyonlands as “the most weird, wonderful, magical place on earth—there is nothing else like it anywhere.”  (Source: Wikipedia, Image: Frank Kovalchek)
