Canyonlands National Park
About 35 miles south of Moab on Highway 191.
The Needles/Anticline road is about 22 miles long.
If you were to hike and climb from Canyonlands
up to the Needles Overlook,
It would be the most dramatic view you've ever seen.
But since you just step out of you car and there it is,
It may not be as appreciated.

Looking south west
Looking west across Canyonlands National Park
Looking south to the Sixshooter peaks and in the far distance,
The Abajo Mountains
The cause of most of the erosion, Indian Creek.
Looking north, the Colorado river is barely visible.
About 25 miles further down its path it will merge with the Green
at Confluence Point.
Looking down over a thousand feet.
