Canyonlands: Buck Canyon & Candlestick Tower Overlooks

This second post from September 23, in Canyonlands National Park, Island in the Sky district, features views from Buck Canyon Overlook and Candlestick Tower Overlook.
 
These first five photos are all from Buck Canyon Overlook:

These twisted trees were everywhere at this national park.

These next three images are from Candlestick Tower overlook. The rock formation known as Candlestick Tower can be seen in the background of the photos.

I don't want to overload you with too many photos in a single post, so I'll have probably two more posts from this national part before moving on to the next stop on this vacation.

  12. A rugged but beautiful landscape. I can only imagine how hard it must have been for early pioneers to pass through this country.
