Canyonlands National Park

Canyonlands National Park in southern Utah is one of the most remote locations in the U.S.. However, I had to wait for a bus load of Chinese tourists to finish their group photo before getting an image of on of its iconic locations: Mesa Arch.

The northern part of the Park, between the Colorado and Green Rivers is called Island in the Sky and provides vast vistas.

A few morning clouds lingered in the canyon of the Green River.
