Remote and rugged region in the heart of Canyonlands National Park. Because it seldom rains, tents are not necessary. Firewood is dry and plentiful. Ekker Butte rises in the background, 05/1972; photo by David Hiser.

Canyonlands National Park is a U.S. National Park located in southeastern Utah near the town of Moab and preserves a colorful landscape eroded into countless canyons, mesas and buttes by the Colorado River, the Green River, and their respective tributaries. The park is divided into four districts: the Island in the Sky, the Needles, the Maze, and the rivers themselves. While these areas share a primitive desert atmosphere, each retains its own character. Two large river canyons are carved into the Colorado Plateau by the Colorado River and Green River. Wikipedia
