Sharing moments in time…

Dead Horse Point, Utah


I mentioned last week that we were heading for the Canyonlands area of Utah for a few days.  We camped in a campground at the Dead Horse Point State Park near the Canyonlands Island in the Sky region.  This is a relatively small park but with spectacular views of the canyons carved by the Colorado River as it winds through the area.  This photo was taken looking down where the river makes a “u” in the valley right under the point lookout area.  It was just at sunset so the nearby cliffs were lit by the fading sun while most of the valley had already faded into the shadows.  The sunset colors on the clouds were spectacular.  A beautiful quiet moment (I was the only one on this particular lookout).
