Canyonlands National Park, Utah

SB will be finishing his assignment in United States and both of us will be going back to Malaysia sometime end of October or beginning of Nov 2009. So, we make the most of our time travelling around Colorado or nearby states during weekend.
Last weekend, we drove 7 hours to Canyonlands National Park in Utah. Last year, we went to Arches National Park, which is just next to Canyonlands but we missed it. Nothing special in this park compare to Arches but we both enjoyed our 1st camping for this summer inside the park. We managed to wake up early for our 1st sunrise :)
We visited a few places on our back to Colorado Springs. I saw my 1st Peach farm & Grape vineyard in Palisade town, bought my 1st fresh Lavender flower at the farmer's market, taken our lunch in a Chinese restaurant in Parachute and shopping at Silverthorn Factory outlet.
