Canyonlands - Mesa Arch vista

My son has this view as a wallpaper on his computer. I have to admit I always thought it was fake until I spotted it in a brochure of Canyonlands National Park. So then of course we had to see it for real even though that meant getting up at five to squeeze that into our trip.

We did well for our last destination in red rock country, didn’t we? How is this for a farewell glimpse of Utah?

Mesa Arch for a view yards off

Mesa Arch looks rather harmless as you walk up to it.
