We went to Canyonlands in Utah. We wanted to drive down into the canyon and you can do that there but you have to have a 4 wheel drive vehicle. There are 2 parts of Canyonlands. First we went to the part by Moab, UT and then we went to the other side about 45 miles away. We drove down this dirt road there and stopped at a beautiful place surrounded by these mushroom shaped tall rocks. It surrounded us. We found a place to park and made our lunch and found a big rock to sit on and eat our sandwich. The sky was gray and it did start to rain toward the end of our lunch. It was so beautiful to sit there and feel the wind blow by and the little drops of rain hit our skin. It was wonderful. Such a great place, all alone eating our lunch on a rock. When we were done eating we packed up our stuff and left because the rain started to really come down.
We could not go far into the canyon on the south end because you need a permit to drive the road. You need a jeep to go further because they have giant rocks to drive over and quicksand you can get stuck in. I don’t think I would drive it even if I had the right vehicle to do that. On their website it says if you get stuck and need a tow, the cost is $1,000 just to have the tow truck come to you. We did go down the North side of the canyon by Moab. It was fun. I will have to write a post about that with pictures. It was beautiful too.
