Photographer's Note

Alstrom Point, Taken in the morning 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. Normally, the morning is not good for photo here, because of the backlighting and haze, but this morning turn out to be okay with some clouds to block the direct light from the sun, the whole landscape is nicely illuminated.

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 rocky stairs. We ended up staying out here camping through the night with no facility. We had enough food and water for the night.

High-clearance 4WDs is recommended, but any high-clearance vehicle is acceptable with good tires. Road is not passable when there is rain. You will have to pass a decent size creek with running water depending on the season, the water can be higher or lower.

See Previous post for anther shot taken later when the sun was brighter.
Good Morning Lake Powell
