Two hundred and ninety million years in the making, this pristine land is the soul of America. Its solace and tranquility refresh those who come to its well. At 1.4 million acres, Greater Canyonlands (including Canyonlands National Park’s 337,598 acres) is the largest roadless property in America outside of Alaska. It is a unique ecosystem unlik...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune. All rights reserved.
