Canyonlands


Canyonlands National Park, Utah. 

Wow! What a beautiful place. 

We hiked the red-rock ridge under a ripe, sultry sun, on a special, spectacular morning back in June. In Utah, we hiked shortly after the sun blinked over the horizon. As a result, we didn't sizzle like bacon strips on the hot sand. Plus, there were only a sprinkling of tourists.

 On this day - due to the sun's fierce interference and our lateness- I finally got saturated photos...














Canyonlands. 

Camera ready.

Everytime I see pictures of Utah it makes me want to visit there. So beautiful. Looks so fun to explore.

Beautiful pictures of Canyonlands! The summer we went there (too long ago now) we pulled a jeep behind our pickup/camper ... had the best time exploring the NP and surrounding area (not off-roading, it was just fun driving our old open-air jeep after we left the pickup in our campground. Felt like you really could see those canyons and beautiful rock formations even while driving to where we were going to hike.). I've read that it is one of the most under-utilized National Parks ... definitely not real easy to get to. But so worth it. Thanks for the beauty and the memories -- and for hosting.

What awesome photos. Like the one where you can see through the rock or at least looks like a see through. Had to keep looking to see all that you captured. :)

Thanks for sharing at Pictorial Tuesday.

Impressive! Both the landscape and how you captured it in your photos. It's always fun to see through your eyes without having to do all that hiking in the sun.
