Colorful Skies- Sunset at Canyonlands National Park, Island in the Sky!


It is hard to imagine how wild and rugged is Canyonlands National Park. One has to visit to know it. The long remote roads to reach, very few visitors and the unforgiving yet beautiful nature around makes this place fascinating.

Sunset at Canyonlands National Park, Utah

I was at the Island in the Sky area of Canyonlands National Park few days ago and watched this beautiful sunset. This section of national park is much popular and gets considerable number of visitors than its neighbor- Needles section. Though the sky is not adorned with clouds, the color and the misty air made it look wonderful!
