Over time, the relentless forces of water and gravity have created a vast landscape of canyons and cliffs in what is now Canyonlands National Park. Rainwater seeps into the porous sandstone and freezes in the winter. During the monsoon rains, sudden thunderstorms release torrents of water that carry sandstone particles into the rivers below, helping to scour the canyons. From above you get a clear picture of this vast network of canyons. This picture was taken from Grandview Point in Canyonlands National Park near Moab, Utah, USA.

Canyonlands National Park, Utah, USA - May 29, 2019: Mesa Arch is a pothole arch, formed when rainwater eventually broke the bonds between grains of sand and deepened surface depressions into a hole. This arch is also geologically unusual in that it sits at the top of a canyon wall. Eventually the same forces of water freezing and thawing will lead to the collapse of this arch. In this picture people are lining up to take their picture with the famous arch. Mesa Arch is on the eastern edge of the Island in the Sky Mesa.

Aztec Butte is a dome shaped butte that rises above Island in the Sky Mesa. In every direction from here, there are expansive views of sheer cliffs and expansive canyons. Hundreds of years ago, the early Puebloans farmed the surrounding fields and harvested seeds and grain. Along the rim of the butte are alcoves that they used to store their grain.

The circular crater around Upheaval Dome is more than two miles wide. Scientists have long wondered about its origins. It could be the remnant of a meteorite impact or it could be a salt dome that cracked and tilted the rock over time. Recent evidence points to the impact theory. Upheaval Dome is in the Islands in the Sky region of Canyonlands National Park near Moab, Utah, USA.

The historic Shafer Trail hugs the wall of Shafer Canyon as it drops 1,400 feet to the Colorado River. Long ago native people used this route to travel from the mesa to the river. In the early 1900's ranchers used the route to drive livestock. In the 1950's the trail was improved into a road that could accommodate trucks hauling ore and equipment from the uranium mines. In 1964 after the national park was established the era of ranching and mining came to a close. Shafer Canyon is in Canyonlands National Park near Moab, Utah, USA.
