  1. An awesome list! Another great vista is through Canyonlands National Park’s Mesa Arch. Located in the park’s Islands of the Sky section, the arch is easy to reach via the 0.5-mile Mesa Arch Loop Trail. The arch frames a desert landscape from atop a 500-foot vertical cliff. Here’s a pan of that view at sunrise: http://hikeswithtykes.blogspot.com/2015/08/video-of-canyonlands-mesa-arch-at.html

    1. Hey Rob! Glad you liked our post and thanks for your suggestion!
      Though we’ve visited a bunch of national and state parks and other recreation areas in the US, we still feel we’ve barely seen anything. 😀 We haven’t been to Canyonlands either, but it’s definitely on our list. Looks like it’s really worth getting up early for that view!
