Canyonlands National Park, Utah

Canyonlands entices one to explore innumerable canyons' tributaries and formations made by the Colorado River. The Island in the Sky, the Maze, the Needles are sections of the park and are separated by the local rivers. These regions share a primitive desert setting, but each offers distinct opportunities for unique experiences.

We hiked out to the end of the Island in the Northern part of Canyonlands National Park. The views were otherworldly. You can see the White Rim Road below.

*Horseshoe Shelter*

The Horseshoe Canyon, formerly known as Barrier Canyon, is in a remote area west of the Green River and since 1971 part of a detached unit of Canyonlands National Park.
The hike to this canyon was one of the biggest experiences of my trips to the southwestern United States.
Almost 1.5 hours before sunrise, I started with a headlamp from the rim to experience the more than 2,000-year-old petroglyphs from the Barrier time in the first light (if our photos in 2000 years still exist ???).
This "picture" is officially called Horseshoe Shelter or Horseshoe Gallery, located on the northern canyon wall, not to be confused with the more popular Great Gallery in the same canyon.

Der Horseshoe Canyon (früher bekannt als Barrier Canyon) liegt in einem abgelegenen Gebiet westlich des Green River und gehört seit 1971 zum Canyonlands National Park.
Die Wanderung in diesen abgelegenen Canyon war für mich eine der größten Erlebnisse meiner Reisen in den Südwesten der USA.
Fast 1,5 Stunden vor Sonnenaufgang startete ich mit Stirnlampe vom Rim aus, um die mehr als 2000 Jahre alten Felszeichnungen aus der Barrier Zeit im ersten Tageslicht zu erleben (ob es unsere Fotos in 2000 Jahren auch noch gibt???).
Dieses "Bild" wird offiziell Horseshoe Shelter oder Horseshoe Gallery genannt, liegt an der nördlichen Canyonwand, nicht mit der bekannteren Great Gallery im gleichen Canyon zu verwechseln.

For this image, I decided to use this "Ansel Adams Look" I'd read about in Jason Odell's book on Capture NX2. The idea is to work with the LCH editor, making some adjustments, and then use a Black point and White point before converting to black & white.

Carvings of Time

The sculpting of the planet over eons of time leaves us with magnificent views such as this. The Green River Overlook in Canyonlands National Park is one grandest and breathtaking points I've visited.
