Utah's National Parks: Canyonlands
Light rain followed us to our second park. Whether it was the weather or the somewhat out-of-the-way entrance to the particular section of the park we visited, there was no crowd at Canyonlands, making the trail there really special. We hiked through crazy rock formations that felt other-worldly. After getting spooked a bit by jarring claps of thunder while on the trail, we headed back to the car and started west on one of the most scenic highways we've ever been on. Seriously. The sights were jaw-dropping... even tear-inducing in their beauty. If ever the opportunity presents itself, take the long drive along 95 between Canyonlands and Hanksville.
