April 2002, Canyonlands National Park, Utah
Red rocks, the 12,000' La Sal Mountains and the mighty Colorado River are the stars of this image. I shot this in Canyonlands National Park from a 4-wheel drive road. The Colorado River eventually winds its way through the Grand Canyon about 150 miles to the south.
The Grand Canyon is much more famous than Canyonlands, but personally I much prefer Canyonlands due to the solitude and sheer size of the place. I was completely alone when I shot this, and I probably only encountered a dozen people the entire day on this particular road.
