"Creator's Hand" Canyon Lands National Park, Utah By Robert Park http://www.robert-park.com, a photo by Robert Park Photography on Flickr.
For me Monument Basin is the highlight of a park with many highlights. It sits below the southernmost point of the Island in the Sky revealing canyons, slots, gorges, mesas, buttes, arches. Combined together it creates some of the most outstanding landscapes I have ever seen. After millions of years the erosion that continues today began. The results are the 2,000-foot deep canyons of the Colorado and Green Rivers cutting through the heart of Canyonlands. As I stood at the rim of this most magnificent vista on a fall morning with clouds breaking from an earlier storm I was greeted with this most stunning glimpse of creation.
