Gus, I don't recognize that arch, are you sure you were in Canyon Lands or could you have been in Arches? If it's really canyon lands it must be in the southern part.

I thought by the title of the thread, that you mean to say Dyslexia is a British SAS. Shocked That'd be cool.

I don't recall if it was in the southern part. If you drive to the very end there is a sweeping panoramic view of a sort of Grand Canyon microcosm. In the distance were some curious tower formations.

On the way back to the entrance there were several arches to the left. The one in the photo would have been on the right and the last one on the way out.

And it was definitely Canyonlands.

Ok I got it now, you came thru the sounthern (the main) entrance rather than thru the northern (dead horse) entrance. so I'm thinking the view in the posted pic is looking west towards capital reef and slightly south would be towards the beginnings of the grand canyon. very pretty area

I do remember it was a very small entrance, with just a guard shack and then a small information building about a hundred yards ahead. It was quite a drive to get there whereas The Arches was right off the highway.

Does that make sense?

There's a nice quiet little campground outside of Moab, right on the bend of a lazy river with a towering red cliff on the opposite bank.

I plan on going back there next summer.

The guy that runs the place can be quite cantankerous.

Really? when we were there it was a lady running the place, or so it seemed.
