Needles Overlook, Utah – View into sandstone country

From Needles Overlook we get a far view into the Needles District of Canyonlands National Park. If you don’t plan to visit this part of the park, the overlook might be a good alternative to get an impression of it. We plan to hike in Needles District anyway, but didn’t want to miss the overlook either.

Some hundreds of metres below us, right above Colorado River, a police helicopter’s rotors are clattering. Again and again the helicopters circle for seeking the shooter who wounded the park ranger. Up here, 600 precipice metres higher, we should be safe.
