Wednesday, September 11 (continued from yesterday) - From Dead Horse Point State Park, we drove down the the road to Canyonlands National Park. The American the Beautiful pass was accepted here, so the $10 entrance fee was waved. What an amazing government program. Can't believe it hasn't been eliminated yet!

When we were here a few days ago, it was raining. Today, we drove the Island in the Sky road around the Park. We continued our hiking marathon by doing  the short hikes to many beautiful sites.  First stop the Grand Point Overlook. There is a one mile walk to the rim.

That was enough hiking for one day!

We have several more hikes and a zillion more pictures to take, so check back and see what good weather and awesome scenery we will report on!

Thanks for stopping by. Hope to see y'all back real soon. Have a great day!
