Fajada Butte rises 300 feet above the floor of Chaco Canyon and dominates the landscape. Near the top there are three large upright slabs arranged to allow sunlight to pass through slits between them and to fall on two spiral petroglyphs. Daggers of light falling on the spirals serve as a calendar with the summer and winter solstices marked in the center and on the edges, respectively. Click to enlarge Fajada Butte.
Part of the Moenkopi and Cutler Formations, the Fisher Towers rise almost 1000 feet and are remnants of an ancient tidal mudflat that covered this area over 200 million years ago.

Weathered limestone forms the spires for which Bryce Canyon National Park is famous. Iron and manganese oxides give the rocks their red, yellow, brown, and lavender hues. Not a true canyon, Bryce Canyon is actually a series of amphitheaters on the edge of a plateau.  Click to enlarge Inspiration Point
A mesa of land between the Green and the Colorado Rivers, the Island in the Sky District offers incredible vistas of canyon country. From the viewpoints on top of the mesa, you can see the mighty rivers cutting their way through the sandstone cliffs. In the distance are the majestic La Salle mountains.

The Maze District is the most remote section of Canyonlands. Distances here are measured in hours instead of miles; a 5-mile stretch of road can take 3 hours to drive. The Land of Standing Rocks is a mesa dominated by diverse towers, walls, and spires that overlooks the "30-square mile puzzle in sandstone" known as the Maze.

The spires of Shiprock rise 1800 feet above the desert valley.  They are the remains of an ancient volcano which has eroded away leaving a volcanic neck and its radiating dikes.  Sacred to the Navajos, Shiprock is known as Tse Bi dahi or the Rock with Wings. Click to enlarge Shiprock
This volcanic uplift resembles a giant Ute warrior lying on his back. A feathered headdress streams northward from his reclining head; arms are folded carefully across his chest, a blanket covers him from his chin to his toes. Click to enlarge Sleeping Ute
