October 15, 2004 - Canyonlands National Park, Part 1

The road to the Island in the Sky district of Canyonlands National Park starts right by the campground.  There are formations and other sights to see along the road to the park like these.

We again saw some lizards.

This is Canyonlands.

We stopped at the Upheaval Dome picnic area for lunch and the wildlife tried to get some of our food.

Upheaval Dome and surroundings.

Off to the viewpoints.  The Green River is in the distance.

A telephoto view of the Green River:

Amazing formations.

It almost doesn't look real.  There is a 4-wheel drive road down below, just barely visible here and there.  It is called the White Rim Road.
