Hiking Canyonland’s Needles District
Canyonlands National Park in Southeastern Utah, is one of my favorite places, especially the Needles District. It is raw, stark and relatively untouched by humans. It’s amazing that you can actually hike through this landscape, although its not for everyone. The trail I took was a loop hike, 11 miles in length. I started at Squaw Flat Campground and negotiated the ups and downs through Elephant and Squaw Canyons. There was one spot just past Squaw Canyon where I could barely fit through a crack in the sandstone. Couldn’t even get a photo of it.
