After spending all day in Arches on Saturday we decided to head to Canyonlands Island in the Sky district on Sunday before heading home. It was nice to finally see more of this part of Canyonlands, because up until this point, I had only been on the Shafer switchbacks.

Amanda hasn’t driven my Jeep much in the past, but she wanted to drive this trail to the end. She was a bit nervous at first but was much more comfortable by the end. I got to ride along and relax for most of the trail 🙂
