NATL PARKS TOUR - "NEEDLES and the UFO!"

by Brenda Nelson September. 21, 2012 3540 views

Following our climb to the top of Delicate Arch, we drove about 90 minutes south to the Needles section of Canyonlands National Park. It took forever to get into the main area, but the drive there was really pretty.
The late-afternoon sun made some of the photos difficult, but enhanced others!

(We're getting up very early, driving several hours to the parks for the day, and then driving back to our hotel. After a quick dinner, we're trying to get all our photos uploaded, edited, and posted before bedtime! I'm sorry if I'm not spending time on your posts right now, but I'll try to catch up when I have more time! Thanks!)

I didn't see the UFO in the upper left part of the photo until I uploaded it. I took both this image and the last shot through the car window, but it didn't appear in the last one!

Iron in the soil causes the rocks to appear dark red!

Maybe I was hungry, but I thought this looked like a cinnamon pastry!

A dry creek - the area only gets about 10 inches of rain per year and it all comes during July!

There's a rather tall man in this photo!

No UFO in this one!
