The Canyonlands is also broken into smaller sections. I first visited Island in the Sky, and then The Needles, which I admit felt very rushed. Especially since I was looking to see Arches National Park by the end of the day.
I pretty much drove to Needles and drove through the Needles, hardly seeing anything at all. When it started to get late, I headed back towards Arches National Park so that I could get some sunset pictures there.
These pictures were taken all around the Needles area, including getting to and possibly leaving the park.
And finally I made it to Arches, which I was very much looking forward to. I did do a small amount of hiking here, but was really rushed due to my late arrival.
I would definitely have to revisit them both if I wanted to get a full idea of what these parks had to offer.
