Really good drive on Potash road up to Shaver rim. Very cool!!

We enjoyed the drive up with Navitec folks and had a great trip up the Potash Rd. to Shaver Rd which ends in Canyonlands National park.

Amazing Vistas in this part of Canyonlands NP. Our favorites were Mesa arch and Grand View. Upheaval dome was okay.

Best kept secret in Utah! What a beautiful place. Utah's version of the Grand Canyon!! We couldn't believe how beautiful it was with every turn.

Definitely worth the visit as it is very close to Arches National Park. Interestingly, there are quite a few cows that graze in the area. The hike to Mesa Arch is definitely worth it!

Canyonlands is an amazing place, in many ways rivaling the Grand Canyon. It also provides some wonderful ops to capture sunrise and sunset with the magical light that best shows off the scenery. Two places for sunrise (having some puffy clouds in the sky is a huge winner, creates op for red/orange sky, aka clouds are your friend...so long as... More

Had some time left in the day after Arches and decided to drive over for a couple of hours here, and so glad we did. After a long drive in off the highway, this view was fantastic and we were so glad we stopped. I highly recommend you stop here if you have the time. Much less crowded than Arches.

Viewpoint within walking distance of campground is breath-taking. It was WINDY!!! I was very glad to be in a camper van and not a tent as the van was rocking all night. We woke in the morning to a dusting of snow that made everything seem magical, and quickly melted away as the sun rose in the sky.

Directly across from the Visitor Center is a trail to overlook the Island in the Sky area. A great introduction to the qualities that define Canyonlands and make it so unique from the other parks in Utah.

This place is incredible! The utter beauty and scope of nature is awesome. One could travel for days in Canyonlands or spend a long afternoon visiting Island in the Sky. A national treasure, for sure.

Canyonlands National Park is divided into several different unconnected regions: Island in the Sky on the north, the Maze on the west, and the Needles on the east. They share a common primitive spirit and Wild West atmosphere until today. Canyonlands remains largely untrammeled as its roads mostly unpaved, trails primitive, and rivers free-flowing. Of all its different regions, Island... More
