Canyonlands National Park Sights

Upheaval Dome

Fodor's Review

This mysterious crater is one of the wonders of Island in the Sky. Some geologists believe it's an eroded salt dome, but others have theorized that it was made by a meteorite. To see it, you'll have to walk about a mile, round-trip, to the first overlook. Energetic visitors should continue to the second overlook as well for a better perspective.
