Here we see the panoramic view from the Shafer Canyon Overlook in the extreme northeast corner of the park. Our initial view looks east up Shafer Trail Road leading into Shafer Canyon. As the view turns left (north) we are looking toward the Island in the Sky Visitor Center, then west toward Neck Spring. Coming full circle, we return to the view of Shafer Trail Road, originally a cattle trail, then later a road for uranium hunters.
Arches National Park
The sandstone at Arches National Park has provided the palette for sensational desert vistas and arches, making this park unique. Nature has used wind, rain and ice to carve fantastic desert vistas and arches. Join the DesertUSA team on a tour of some of the incredibly beautiful natural features at Arches National Park.
Canyon in the Cosos
The Cosos lie within the confines of China Lake Naval Weapons Center (NWC), the U.S. Navy's largest research and development facility, making it a little difficult to arrange a visit. Let DesertUSA show you this little-viewed canyon that contains as many as 100,000 drawings, some thought to be 10,000 years old.
