Island in the Sky, part of Canyonlands National Park, Utah, is one of the most alien yet impressive destinations.
There are many trails to choose from in this part of the park, the most popular is a one-mile-long hike along the rim of the canyon. At the end of the trail, one can enjoy a panoramic view of the landscape.
One of the most iconic spot here is the Mesa Arch. The arch itself frames the landscape beyond perfectly, and offers a unique perspective. If you are brave enough (like I was), the arch is just about wide enough to walk across, and the view from the top of it is breathtaking!
