Weber State University journalism instructor Shane Farver hit the trail earlier this month in Canyonlands National Park.
Farver and a friend hiked in Chesler Park href="http://www.nps.gov/cany/planyourvisit/needles.htm" target="_blank">in the Needles District. As you can see from the photographs, wide open vistas gave way to slot canyons on a day of sightseeing.
Farver also mapped his hike. Find it by href="http://maps.google.com/?t=k&q=http%3A%2F%2Fs3.amazonaws.com%2Faccuterra%2F1331612766.kmz&fb_source=message" target="_blank">clicking here.
