My father and I traveled to four national parks in southern Utah at the end of March 2016. We started in Zion and then went to Bryce, Arches and finally Canyonlands. Each park was stunning. The Colorado Plateau gives rise to incredible geological features that are nothing like I have ever seen. The rivers have carved away at many layers of rock and sediment for thousands of years to form amazing canyons, bridges, hoodoos, mountains, and arches. This photograph is of Mesa Arch in Canyonlands National Park. After a quick 30 minute hike you are rewarded with this remarkable natural arch. My father and I arrived early in the morning, which meant the sun was low in the sky and caused the underside of this arch to glow. This natural window had an equally stunning view as you continue to look through the impressive arch. I hope to return to these unbelievable parks one day.
