 From Island in the Sky see a colorful landscape eroded into countless canyons, mesas and buttes by the Colorado River and its tributaries which divide the park into four distinct districts.

 Take a 4-wheel drive in a monumental place few people know about. See dozens of spectacular sandstone sculptures and spires. The valley lies at the base of a 1,200-foot bluff called Cedar Mesa that was formed when a sea invaded from the northwest 250 million years ago.

"It is an incalculable added pleasure to any one's sum of happiness
if he or she grows to know, even slightly and imperfectly,
how to read and enjoy the wonder-book of nature."
