Green River Overlook Fissure
Earlier this spring, I spent a few days on the Island in the Sky side of Canyonlands National Park. Clouds blanketed the sky, providing a nice backdrop to the sandstone cliffs and canyons. I took this panorama near the Green River Overlook on my way to go hike along the rim. The shelf of sandstone leading down to the fissure cut by the river below is truly spectacular. As I walked along, the open space seemed to eat the sounds of my footsteps- no echoes.
