Chesler Park

I had been wanting to hike to Chesler Park for years,
as it is one of the more popular and famous sites of Needles Canyonlands.
However, the view was rather anticlimactic.
A lot of this was probably due to the fact that we arrived in midafternoon,
and I am told that the best light for viewing Chesler Park
is in the morning.
But on the way there, we had some great views.
This is the rock wall right before the park-
the gap between cliffs is where the trail climbs and enters
Chesler Park proper.

This is an overlook about halfway through the hike:

The late light on the return hike was very lovely:
