Photographer's Note

This is taken at Chesler Park area of Canyonlands, Needles District.

The Needles District forms the southeast corner of Canyonlands and was named for the colorful spires of Cedar Mesa Sandstone that dominate the area. There must be thousands of sandstone columns of various size and color. Once arriving, there are several canyons and pockets to explore with many trail options throughout. The district’s extensive trail system provides many opportunities for long day hikes.

Though it is more difficult to get to, which mean it is also less touristic than the Island in the Sky District which is easier to access. I highly recommended.

When we arrived, it was already pitch dark, we just set our tent and went to sleep, imagine waking up and get out of your tent to see all these sandstone columns in the distance in the morning light. It is such a wonderful site to wake up to. See Workshop for a complementary shot of a view I have getting out of the tent, “Good Morning Needles and Canyons”
