One part of this national park is a huge mesa called "Island in the Sky" and it's exactly that. From elevations of about 1800 metres (6,000 ft) the sides of the mesa dramatically plunge down 1,200 feet to a plateau called White Rim. It is then another thousand feet drop to the Colorado and Green Rivers which flow through the bottom of this remarkable terrain.
Canyonlands, in southwest Utah, preserves this incredible region of panoramas.
Eons of years of erosion have resulted in a wilderness of rock. It is a landscape of cliffs, canyons, mesas, buttes, spires and towers which all create an overwhelming experience for the visitor.
