Alstrom Point, Taken in the evening with a view of Gunsight Butte and Padre Bay and a high viewpoint over Lake Powell. I was really here for the sunset, though it was a nice day, the sun light was very strong with dark shadow, I was hoping after the sunset it will have some nice sky on top, but it was cloudy at the western horizon, The sun just went into the dark clouds, turning gray and dark, but there were a few nice moments before the light went all flat. You can see the same Navajo Mountain on the right side as in Peter's recent post.
This is part of Glen Canyon National Recreation Area. We drove for about 3 hours on a bumpy dirt road. The last 2 miles or so was so bad we were driving up rocks that were like stairs rather than road. We ended up staying out here camping through the night with no facility. We had enough food and water for the night.
Hard to believed it was already 10 years ago. We would love to visit again, but we would to wait many years till the kids are much older.
What a beautiful array of colours you have here, not to mention depth. It must have ben lovely to have camped here one for night and to wake to the silence and the beauty. Your time will come again to do such wonderful things and to share your experiences with the children.
What a wonderful overlook. The water looks all green with this light. I really like the moving clouds adding this artistic side to it. Fun to see all the boats. They seem to have found a spot for the night just like you sleeping in your little tent. I have never really thought about going towards this direction. To me desert was desert, point, finito. But I must say this is truly fascinating worthwhile all the effort and many bumps.
