After a good night’s sleep and a proper breakfast, it was time to head out to the Needles section of Canyonlands National Park. Instead of driving north on US-191 out of Monticello I opted to drive west along a series of back roads that would make the trip out to Canyonlands much quicker. Of course I was shooting all along the way. Looking through all the shots it amazing to see the difference in climate over the course of only a few miles
Right after setting out from Monticello I spotted this cool little smiley face in the road and just had to double back to get a shot (Google Earth).
