Canyonlands National Park Utah Video
Canyonlands National Park, located in the Colorado Plateau region, is a showcase of geology. Rivers divide the park into three districts, the Island in the Sky, the Needles, and the Maze. While these areas share a primitive desert atmosphere, each exhibits a distinctive character, and offers different opportunities for exploration.

Lake Powell - The completion of the Glen Canyon Dam in 1963 created Lake Powell. It took another 14 years to fill the lake. With almost 2,000 miles of shoreline, and five marinas, Lake Powell has become a major attraction for millions of visitors from all over the world. Take a look at Lake Powell and enjoy this desert combination of red sandstone formations, water and clear blue skies.
