Life on California's beautiful Central Coast

Epic Canyonlands overlook

Forgive me while I post way too many photos from our visit to the Needles Overlook of Canyonlands National Park. I took a ton of pics, most of them were lousy, but some of them were OK. I keep telling Erik that he makes photographs and I take pictures.. his will be worthy of publication in a coffee table book!

We started the day in Devil’s Canyon and drove through Monticello en route to the overlook, which was recommended by my geologist friend Danielle. She has been through this area many times as part of SBCC geology trips (which are open to the public, should you have an interest) and recommended all the best spots.

Had to change the name of that evil Devil's Highway.
