Canyonlands' Island In The Sky, 2

We awoke at Willow Flats CG to a dusting of snow and temperatures in the lower 30s. But the day's forecast promised sunshine and temps in the 40s, good walking weather (good, not optimum), and so we headed off to more sights and short hikes in Canyonlands' Island in the Sky unit.

And thus

And now we are walking along the rim at Grand View Point
Overlook, 6,000 feet, a mile walk out to the Point for more
views of the Green River canyons

A different part of the White Rim

With its own needles and such

Marching along, enjoying great light

More sights

Our little hike done, we are now over on the other side of this
arm of the mesa, looking out to the Colorado River basin

Part of the Buck Canyon overlook


And thus

And now we are on the short walk to Mesa Arch, one of
Canyonlands' many arches

Closer up

The view

Mesa Arch flies right over the pix from the other side!

That is just amazing country. I personally like greener vistas, but this is really spectacular.
