Needles District - Canyonlands

 It turned out that our campground at Devil's Canyon below Monticello was a perfect place to launch a day exploring the southern region of Canyonlands known as the Needles District. I don't think we would have come back down this way from our other planned overnight spots due to weather and length of drive. We would have missed out on seeing an extraordinarily beautiful region.

One of the best parts of having visited Needles was that we got familiar with these lowland mazes of color and shape prior to seeing it from the upper reaches of the Island of the Sky district of the park. Once again, there was a noticeable lack of tourists here compared to other park locations which is a loss considering how incredibly beautiful this region is.
