This is one of the most popular national parks in Utah. Here are some facts about it...
Canyonlands National Park was established in 1964 to protect 277,600 acres of canyons, escarpments, and cliffs.
This is home to some of the most remote areas in the Contiguous US. It consists of four districts total but is still considered as three because Horseshoe Canyon is a separate region.
The early Native Americans, who left behind stone and mud dwellings as well as pictographs in this park, reveal human presence reaching back as long as 4,000 years.
This park is mostly a desert region but consists of a wide diversity of vegetation, including trees, grasslands, wildflowers, pteridophytes, willows, and cacti.
Canyonlands National Park has been featured in several films over the years. Some of the films shot in the park include "Thelma & Louise" in 1991 and "127 Hours."
Canyonland maintains a magnificent night sky due to high environmental quality and low light pollution. It's so clear that you can spot more than 10,000 stars here.
Canyonlands National Park is home to over 50 mammal species and more than 270 bird species, despite the fact that the area is naturally silent, giving the sense of lifelessness.
