      Mesa Arch, Canyonlands
      Photo by Peter Thody
      Canyonlands National Park is blessed with many world-class scenic wonders but the jewel in the crown for many is Mesa Arch, a spectacular gateway of rock that stands atop a sheer cliff and frames the views over the canyons below and the Colorado River beyond.

      If you go:
      Reaching the arch is an easy half mile walk from the Mesa Arch parking area along the Island in the Sky scenic drive. This is probably the most photographed feature in the entire park. Arrive in time for sunrise and experience the unforgettable sight of the sun illuminating the underside of the arch.
