Posted on Sun, 16-Oct-2016Tue, 01-Nov-2016 by pamCanyonlands – Utah Heading towards Moab, we stopped at Fisher Towers for a lunch break hike. We stitched this panorama together to try to show the beauty of the amphitheater. Further on, we stopped along the Colorado River to enjoy the perspective of being on the water. We found this amazing campsite on BLM land between Arches NP and Canyonlands – Isle. There were others camping in the same valley but we felt like we had a great site with excellent views. We were here three nights. Candlestick rock from a hike to an overlook point with our lunch. Enjoying the Colorado River and all the canyons that were carved in the past. This is the Schaeffer Trail panorama. We did not take the Travato down! An early hike to Morning Glory natural bridge down Negro Bill Canyon. An afternoon drive along Potash Road on the west side of Moab to enjoy the scenery. And to discover the petroglyphs. We drove as far as Jug Arch. A final sunset before heading to the southern part of Canyonlands. Newspaper rock never fails to fascinate! It has been fun to experience this area in the fall colors. There was a full moon rise from our next campsite of three nights on in the Manitou National Forest. A hike in Canyonlands Needles district. Very fun slick rock shapes. A slight breeze to cool us but unseasonably warm this year. We feel so privileged to be able to spend a day doing this hike. A bit of aspens or cottonwoods in the canyon bottom. We would have loved to park over night here but it was private land – but nice we were able to spend a few minutes here. Another hike to Paul Bunyan’s Potty. Do you remember our picture with Paul in Minnesota?
