Stark, beautiful, rugged, remote, slightly scary and definitely not somewhere to get lost! Simply one way to describe the awe inspiring views from Needles Overlook across Utah’s Canyonlands.
The silence is so absolute it makes your ears ring the only sound is the keening of the wind and the flapping of a raven’s wings as it flies past.
Needles Overlook is at the end of a paved road a few miles south of Moab just off highway 191.
On the way we passed Wilson Arch which is named after Joe Wilson a local pioneer who had a cabin in nearby Dry Valley.
Have fun, we are!
