Reprise of 2008 Trips to Corona Arch, Dead Horse Point State Park, and Island In The Sky District of Canyonlands National Park - Utah
Today, we returned to the sites of some great memories from last year so we could share these special places with Linda's sister, Karen, and her husband, Jay. We did get some different photos this time around, so it might be worth checking out this post even if you read the ones from April 2008.
This hike in Canyonlands National Park in Utah was one of the longest day-hikes we've done since we began our extensive U.S. travels in 2005. It was exhausting, but it's also one of the most memorable days we've had on the trails.
Today we went to a scenic overlook in the Needles District of Canyonlands National Park that is visited by very few people. It takes traversing a seven-mile four-wheel-drive road. The length of the hike depends on your vehicle, your 4WD skills, and how far you are willing to drive. But the views at the end, and the solitude, are worth it.
After our first visit to the Needles District of Canyonlands National Park about three weeks prior, we moved to just outside the park for the next few days. This was our second venture into Needles and it is certainly clear why they call it "Canyonlands".

This is an account of our first visit to the Needles District of Canyonlands National Park in Utah. It was a rather short visit, but it was a beautiful drive, and it set the stage for later excursions in this remote area.
