Mesa Arch, Canyonlands National Park

Arches and Canyonlands National Parks lie just minutes outside of Moab, Utah.  Arches National Park, literally 5 minutes outside of Moab, boasts having more than 2000 natural arches in a red rock wonderland.  Canyonlands, a 30 minute drive outside of Moab, provides overlooks with spectacular views that are reminiscent of the Grand Canyon.  Both provide wonderful scenery and great photographic opportunities.  

Delicate Arch, Arches National Park

In Arches National Park we visited Turret arch and the Windows section, Balanced Rock, and Park Avenue.  We also made the 40 minute hike up to Delicate Arch, probably the most famous arch in the park.  Luckily, after the uphill hike we were greeted with a wonderful sunset.

In Canyonlands we visited Grand View Point and battled 50 mph gusts with sand at Green River Overlook.  And no photography trip would be complete without a sunrise photo at Mesa Arch (along with some other photographers).  We also made a sunrise visit to Dead Horse Point State Park, which is located right next to Canyonlands.
