Island in the Sky

Our final visit in the Moab area was to Canyonlands’ “Island in the Sky.”

The Island in the Sky in Canyonlands National Park is a mesa with sandstone cliffs that drop over 1,000 feet to the terrain below.  It is the easiest part of the park to visit, having many spectacular viewpoints at pullouts along the paved scenic roads.  At an average elevation of 6100 feet, it is the highest part of the park.  It includes about a dozen trails of varying lengths, some across the plateau as well as a few descending toward the rivers.
