canyonlands national park green river

Not a lot of green or river down there at Canyonlands National Park.

The Green River overlook at Canyonlands National Park was our end of the day tonic after a long, very hot and exhausting hike in nearby Arches National Park. It's about an hour's drive from Arches, and the overlook is a few miles into the park. After the Arches death march, we were too smashed to do any hiking in Canyonlands, so we settled for some spectacular sunset views. Not too bad to just sit here, cable release in hand, watching the light change for about an hour.
