    Candlestick Tower

    by PinkFloydActuary Written Sep 26, 2005

    Driving north from Grandview Point and towards Upheaval Dome, you will see this formation jutting out in the landscape. There's a small overlook to which you can pullover and take a picture.

    You must at least view at best camp at Dead Horse Point. Spectacular classic view of the Green River Gooseneck. See the sunset and sunrise for best shots.

    This is a great place to see Canyonlands in all of its glory. The lack of people makes this a peaceful, meditative place to marvel!!

    Trails to follow

    by Combinedefx Written Feb 8, 2004

    There are several trails to walk, many only one quarter of a mile and one half mile. They do provide much to look at and explore.
    The expansive views are remarkable.

    Canyonland Cliffs

    by markftlaud Written Feb 1, 2004

    It is hard to describe how wild and remote this land is. I don't think my photos can convey the image I really saw with my eyes.

    Looking down at the Colorado River from the Maze

    by markftlaud Written Feb 1, 2004

    This was my backyard view from the Dollhouse. I can not say enough about how spectacular this land is. You just look over vast wild land that seems to go on forever.

    The desert eco system of the Canyonlands

    by markftlaud Written Feb 1, 2004

    The Canyonlands and most of southern Utah is desert. The best time to visit is in the Spring or fall. Summers are very hot. When hiking bring a lot of water with you.

    Camping in the Canyonlands

    by markftlaud Written Jan 31, 2004

    Camping in the remote Needles and Maze sections was one of the greatest experiences in my life. It was the most remote I have ever been. In five days I saw about twenty other people.
