It seems fitting that I'm making this post on the exact 50th Anniversary of the creation of Canyonlands National Park. We've been to a lot of national parks, and this region is definitely a favorite. It's remote, rugged, diverse, and downright beautiful. The battle to protect the lands surrounding the park boundaries is still being fought.
We hiked out to Chesler Park on a very warm morning. Like any single day you spend in Canyonlands - you only get a taste of the landscape and it leaves you wanting to spend more time there. I definitely came away from this hike (and this whole trip) thankful that we have such a wonderful national parks system to explore and enjoy.
