On a vacation a few weeks ago, we traveled through Colorado and into Utah to camp for a few nights under the dark skies of the Needles area of Canyonlands National Park.  I added more evidence to my hypothesis that hiking does not mingle nicely with photography.  Attempting to do both doesn’t serve either well.  However, I will say that the short hikes we took were very pleasant (certainly a stark contrast to hikes local to Springfield!).  With the exception of the petroglyph, which was taken on nearby BLM land, all of these images are from Canyonlands.
