Canyonlands National Park is located near the city of Moab, in southeastern Utah. The Park is divided into four parts: Island in the Sky, The Needles, The Maze and the rivers. It was established in 1964 and it was expanded in 1971, when the Maze, the Land of Standing Rocks, as well as Davis and Lavender canyons were added to the Park.
