Island in the Sky

Moab, Utah

Canyonlands National Park

October 21, 2012

The Island in the Sky mesa rests on sheer sandstone cliffs over 1,000 feet above the surrounding terrain. Every overlook offers a different perspective on Canyonlands’ spectacular landscape.  Our early visit one stormy morning offered some amazing views with grand light and color.
