Walking in Canyonlands

Midday from the base of Taylor Cayon

Spending any time in Utah’s beautiful Canyonlands National Park, it’s easy to see why it has been a place to visit for ten thousand years. From the ancient hunters and gatherers that walked the areas before Europe even knew they existed to French trappers looking for beaver and otter; all the way up to the area’s establishment as a national park in 1964, Canyonlands has been travelled and explored by people from every walk of life who desire to see it’s carved ridges and sloping rock walls.

I spent three days in this area, backpacking across only small part of the beautiful landscape: a three day loop from Taylor canyon and through one side of the formidable Upheaval Dome. It is no wonder that the arid and sometimes inhospitable landscape was never made a home for anyone who chose to wander in it, but there is without a doubt something amazing to experience among the dry river beds and rocky paths and every day was as eye-opening as it was challenging.
