After sunrise at Mesa Arch we headed over to Green River Overlook. You can see a little of the Green River in the upper right of the picture.
Canyonlands National Park
Canyonlands is a huge park with over 330,000 acres. There are 4 districts divide by the Green and Colorado Rivers.
Island in the Sky
Both Mesa Arch and Green River Overlook are in the Island in the Sky section of Canyonlands National Park.
This was a special spot for me. It is really quite a feeling to be at 6000 feet and looking down into this stunning landscape.
The beauty was surprisingly moving for me. I got very emotional looking out over this beautiful creation.
I have been to the Grand Canyon, which it was similar too multiple times. I think this experience was special because it was surprising and it felt more intimate and I was really enjoying the people I was with.
The surrounding area and of course pictures of a tree! Juniper to be exact.
Thanks for joining me on the stop at Green River Overlook. It was truly special. If you are going to be at Mesa Arch I highly suggesting driving the .9 miles (3 minutes) to see and experience this view.
