Towering Plateaus in the forefront of Snow-capped La Sal Mountains in Utah

Leaving Arches National Park heading for Grand Junction, Colorado I spotted these towering plateaus, and just had to stop and grab a photo. They’re so majestic, I decided to wander out into the high desert pasture to grab a quick shot. I noticed some bulls off to the left of me, so I knew I shouldn’t wander to far away from the safety of the barbed wire fence. After a stare-down and nostrils flaring, that was my cue to get out of there.

La Sal Mountains from Canyonlands National Park, Utah

Looking east across the plateaus, out to the La Sal mountains is quite invigorating, as you stand high above it all. You can get a sense of how far down it is, from the size of the road below. I spent 3 days exploring Canyonlands and Arches National Park. It wasn’t enough time. As you get into these parks, photo opportunities are endless as is the incredible landscapes. If you ever come, spend a week, take advantage of camping and hiking this wild and raw Utah landscape.. and bring your camera.
