We finally made it into Canyonlands National Park–the reverse of Arches’ upward topography. This park is really like a miniature Grand Canyon complete with a river running along the bottom. We completed 3 hikes–a total of only 4 miles but tough climbs up large boulders. The kids enrolled in the Junior Ranger program, completed a booklet of questions and answers based on their hikes on the trails and an initial “Ranger Talk.” They earned a cool badge at the end of the day.
