19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Altered Images
Island in the Sky

Canyonlands National Park in Moab, Utah, has brick-red canyons and vast valleys that emulate the same spirit as the images we’ve seen of Mars. The historic lands are rich in fossils, tracks, and bones, and include part of an area known as “Dinosaur Diamond.” This photo overlooks both the winding Colorado and Green Rivers.
