America’s Beauty: Canyonlands Utah

Let me introduce you to Canyonlands National Park, Utah. Notice all the unusual and distinct creations that were made from erosion and natures elements.

According to the National Parks website, Canyonlands preserves in the state of Utah is a colorful landscape eroded into countless canyons, mesas and buttes by the Colorado River and its tributaries. The rivers divide the park into four districts: the Island in the Sky, the Needles, the Maze and the rivers themselves.
Here’s the satellite view of the area from Google maps.
The Terragalleria site shows the awesomeness of this area. Here are some favorite photos:
