Labyrinth of countless canyons

Canyonlands National Park is one of my favorite parks in the South West United States. Its colorful landscape is amazing and it is like a labyrinth of countless canyons, mesas and buttes created by natural agents. It has a huge variety and it is absolutely huge. Some areas can only be explored with an off road vehicle (and even with those, you need to know what you are doing).

During my last trip there I decided to rent a Jeep from one of the outfitters in Moab to explore a section of the White Rim trail. I left Moab around 4am to be at Mesa Arch (you can see here a photo I took there) at sunrise to be able to shoot the arch with a rising sun. It was fantastic!

The descent into White Rim trail is absolutely breathtaking! It is a series of switchbacks that give you a gorgeous view at every step. Given the limited time available, I drove around 12 miles on the trail before I had to head back but every minute was precious and I will definitely go back for more!

Amazing national park

This is a vast and spectacular park where two rivers, the Colorado and Green, have excavated deep canyons in the heart of Utah. This national park includes some of the most complex and remote scenic areas in the United States. You can go rafting in some of the world's most exciting spots like any of the 26 rapids near Cataract Canyon dam. It is also a perfect place for mountain biking with excellent routes like the White Rim in Island in the Sky which is about 100 kilometers long.

And we can not forget about the trails, perfect for those who prefer to walk. There are two tourist information centers, located on each of the access roads. There are also some camping sites that are accessible. Canyonlands National Park does not offer additional services, but there are excellent hotels, restaurants and other services in nearby towns.

The shafer trail

The Shafer Trail. My favorite picture of one of my favorite vacation days ever. It's like having Canyonlands NP to yourselves. We drove our own Wrangler but they are available for rent in Moab. I'm pretty sure any higher clearance 4wd would make the trip with no problem.
