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.

Just a few dozen miles from the small...

Just a few dozen miles from the small town of Moab, Utah, Canyonlands National PArk is one of the many national parks of the American West, and one of our favorites. I must say it is formed by the Colorado Plateau, simply outstanding, and contains beds of Colorado and Green rivers. The sunset is remarkable with the lights reflected on the rocks. The canyon is almost more impressive than the Grand Canyon in Arizona, as it is infinement less touristy and therefore we appreciate other place, by the peace and tranquility prevailing.

Situé à seulement quelques dizaines de miles de la petite ville de Moab, dans l'Utah, Canyonlands National PArk est l'un des nombreux parcs nationaux de l'Ouest américain, ainsi que l'un de nos préférés. Il faut dire qu'il est constitué par le plateau du Colorado, tout simplement remarquable, et abrite les lits des rivières Colorado et Green. Le coucher du soleil y est remarquable avec les lumières qui se reflètent sur les rochers. Le canyon est presque plus impressionnant que le Grand Canyon, dans l'Arizona, car il est infinement moins touristique et que l'on apprécie donc autrement le lieu, de par le calme et la quiétude qui règnent.

The immensity of utah at my feet

We are at Dead Horse Point, the lookout on the deep can that winds travs Utah at the height of Moab, a foretaste of the Grand Khan of Colorado. The reddish rock that gives color and name to ro is interrupted occasionally by pequeas green spots. The vegetation is sparse in this semidesrtico place, but no less spectacular, with large moles of sheet rock rounded by erosion, loose along the ravine. Canyonlands is one of those places where the human being feels really pequeito nature.

La inmensidad de utah a mis pies

Estamos en Dead Horse Point, el mirador sobre el profundo cañón que serpentea a través del estado de Utah a la altura de Moab, un anticipo del Gran Cañón del Colorado. El tono rojizo de la roca que da color y nombre al río es interrumpido de vez en cuando por pequeñas manchas verdes. La vegetación es escasa en este paraje semidesértico, pero no por ello es menos espectacular, con sus grandes moles de roca laminada redondeadas por la erosión, desprendidas a lo largo del barranco. Canyonlands es uno de esos lugares en que el ser humano se siente pequeñito al lado de la naturaleza.

The west huge and tortured

One of the largest North American parks on the Colorado Plateau. It was not the bewitching charm of "Arches" as geological forms are less "artistic" and then there is overwhelming for the man who feels small, especially as hikers disperse in its immensity . Often harsh and lunar landscapes, even if they have poetic names like "The Island in the Sky." The views are spectacular and long distances without any human settlement. The canyons are multiple (at least two rivers) and justify the "s" of the title.

L'ouest immense et torturé

Un des plus grands parcs nord-américains sur le plateau du Colorado. Il n'a pas le charme envoûtant de "Arches", car les formes géologiques sont moins "artistiques" et puis, il est plus écrasant pour l'homme qui se sent tout petit, d'autant que les randonneurs se dispersent dans son immensité. Paysages souvent rudes et lunaires, même s'ils portent des noms poétiques comme "L'île dans le ciel". Les points de vue sont spectaculaires et les distances longues sans la moindre implantation humaine. Les canyons sont bien multiples (deux fleuves au moins) et justifient le "s" du titre.

Canyonlands, land of canyons

The name comes from the confluence of several natural canyons in the park. From this elevated location o, hence the name of the Island in the Sky Park visitor center, you can observe from cannons, to a formation that resembles a crater of extinct volcano. It is a place with incredible panormicas from any of its many panormicos points. In terms of scenery is far superior to The Needles, in the southern part of the park, and certainly if due to time out, this will make the visit instead of the southern part of the park.

Canyonlands, tierra de cañones

El nombre viene de la confluencia de varios cañones naturales en el mismo parque.

Desde esta ubicación elevada, por eso el nombre de Island in the Sky del visitor center del parque, se pueden observar desde cañones, hasta una formación que se asemeja a un cráter de volcán extinguido. Es un lugar con unas panorámicas increíbles desde cualquiera de sus muchos puntos panorámicos.

En cuanto a paisajes es muy superior al The Needles, en la parte sur del parque, y sin duda si por falta de tiempo fuera, haría la visita este en lugar de la parte sur del parque.

Can nothing to envy to the colorado ...

Spectacular definitely a place worth visiting. There is so much crush of people and can see different formations and landscapes in the same park.

Nada que envidiar al cañón del colorado...

Espectacular, sin duda un lugar que merece la pena visitar. No hay tanta aglomeración de gente y permite ver distintas formaciones y paisajes en un mismo parque.
