Canyonlands Panoramic Picture Framed
This panoramic photograph of Canyonlands National Park was taken by James Blakeway. It features a view of Canyonlands as seen looking through Mesa Arch. Authorized as a national park in 1964, the park contains a maze of deep canyons, mesas, spires, arches, and other geological features carved by wind and water. The air quality in this area is reputed as some of the clearest in the country. The snow-capped La Sal Mountains, visible through Mesa Arch, is approximately thirty-five miles in the distance. To a large degree, Canyonlands remains untrammeled. Its roads are mostly unpaved, its trails primitive, its rivers free-flowing. This is wild America.
