Canyonlands is the largest national park in Utah.  There are three major divisions of the park.  We visited the Island in the Sky, which sits atop a massive 1500 foot mesa, living up to its name quite literally.  IMG_1467

20 miles of paved roads lead to many of the most spectacular views in Utah.  From the viewpoints, you can see nearly 100 miles on a clear day.IMG_1422

We hiked several trails throughout the day, the first being out to the end of the ‘island’ to Grand View Point, the second to Upheaval Dome and the third to Mesa Arch.
