A couple of years ago I took a road trip to Utah over Thanksgiving weekend and spent the majority of the trip exploring Arches National Park. I did manage to visit Canyonlands National Park just long enough to watch the sunset from Shafer Canyon Overlook.
Honestly, before visiting I knew almost nothing about Canyonlands National Park. Visiting, even briefly made me curious and made me want to come back, and go on hikes throughout this stunning park. The short and sweet experience reminds me of seeing a trailer for a great movie, and you cannot wait to watch the full film, well, after my stopover I cannot wait to thoroughly explore Canyonlands National Park.
