Description

Canyonlands National Park is located in southeastern Utah. Proposals as early as the 1930s for a national monument were criticized. Arches National Park Superintendent Bates Wilson advocated the creation of a national park in the 1950s and early 1960s.

President Lyndon B. Johnson signed Public Law 88-590 on 12 September 1964 establishing 257,640 acres as Canyonlands National Park. In 1971, Congress expanded Canyonlands to 337,598 acres. The park preserves the colorful landscape that has been eroded into canyons, mesas, arches, and buttes by the Colorado River and its tributaries.

Canyonlands forms the heart of a high or cold desert called the Colorado Plateau. The first humans known to visit Canyonlands were Paleoindians, who searched for large game animals and edible plants as long as 10,000 years ago.

Charles G. Henningsen’s platinum print captures The Maze from the Green River Overlook, which offers a southwest facing view of the plateau deeply carved by the Green River.
