Near Mexican Hat, Utah is Gooseneck State Park which overlooks the meandering San Juan River. One thousand feet below, the San Juan River flows through 5 miles of canyons while progressing westward only one mile. It is one of the best examples to be found of entrenched river meanders.

This panorama is a stitch of 5 images.

Taking in the sights while on a nostalgic drive on Route 66 in Arizona. Alien led tours of the Grand Canyon Caverns are apparently available here! ;-)

Image title in memory of the late, great Chuck Berry.

Looking down at the Shafer Switchbacks. The Shafer Trail Road-Shafer Canyon Road is a 18 miles dirt track located in Canyonlands National Park just outside of Moab, Utah.

The road requires a 4 wheel drive vehicle and a driver without a fear of heights. Much of the road is a single track with widely spaced passing places which can involve backing up some distance if an on coming vehicle is met.

I'm looking forward to our next return to the Moab area so we can rent a 4X4 Jeep in Moab and spend a day driving this road and the White Rim Road, an unpaved four-wheel drive road that traverses the top of the White Rim Sandstone formation below the mesa of Canyonlands National Park.

Winter weather in the Midwest consists of days, weeks and even months with temperatures below freezing with views that are usually snow covered. What better way to break the winter weather blues than a road trip!! Bags packed, flight to Vegas, pick up a rental car and begin exploring the national parks and other sights of Nevada, southern Utah and northern Arizona.

Several days of our Southwest adventure were based in Moab, Utah with its close proximity to two national and one state park. Arriving at Deadhorse Point State Park I thought I was prepared for the views . . . I don't think I was. I felt like a kid in a candy store . . . everywhere I looked was treat for the eye (and the camera)!

It was late in the day, so we limited ourselves to exploring the east rim of the canyon. This image captured the early evening light while walking along the east rim trail at Deadhorse Point State Park. In the distance is the snow capped La Sal Mountains.

A fabulous introduction to Deadhorse Point . . . it will not be our last visit during our winter adventure.
