Island in the Sky, Canyonlands National Park, Utah

Edward Abbey said it best when he described Canyonlands National Park as, “the most weird, wonderful, magical place on earth.  Here are some photos of my visit to the Island in the Sky district of Canyonlands National Park:

Mesa Arch is gorgeous and accessible by walking a short trail.  Here is a pic of my eyes trying to drink it all in and photos of the arch as well as the mountains and canyons beyond:
