Today we will re-visit Canyonlands National Park but this time we are going to the Needles Area of the park.
As we were driving along Utah 191 we drove past Wilson Arch.
The scenery along Utah 191 as we drive.
We arrive at Canyonlands National Park Needles Area.
I am unsure why they call this the Needles area, although there are Needle like shapes in the distance, the road is only taking us past these mushroom shaped rocks. These rocks remind me of the Flintstones house.
We stopped at Big Spring Canyon to take some photos.
Then it is on to the Wooden Shoe Arch. Just like it is named, this rock formation looks like a wooden shoe.
Then it was on to the Roadside Ruin. This is an old Ancestral Puebloan granary where the natives would store their grains. It is tucked in underneath a rock overhang.
We stopped at the Visitor Center to have our passport book stamped and bought some souvenirs.
We headed out of the park on Utah 211 and made a stop at Newspaper Rock. This is a rock that is covered with petroglyphs.
Shortly after, we arrived at our hotel in Blanding UT.
