Took a 25 mile off road adventure to capture this photo at sunset in Utah overlooking Lake Powell. The vista point is called Alstrom Point and it is one heck of a ride to get there. Definitely leave an hour and 45 minutes to two hours for a safe journey. We underestimated the time it would take us to get here and were rushing down this dirt road which slowly got worse the further you got from paved road. At one point the back seat passengers were in the air hitting their heads on the roof of the car. What an adventure! If you don’t mind being bumped around, the scenery was beautiful. The road starts off as a maintained dirt road with amazing rock formations to the left. Many of the rocks have had slides fall off the face creating big boulder fields. Really stunning, but no time to stop for photos. The landscape quickly changes to a more desert scene as the road becomes less and less visible. You rely heavily on tire tracks and cairns to lead the way often wondering if it’s the right choice. Navigating back in the dark was even harder as one can imagine and very slow going to say the least. Several of us had to get out of the vehicle with head lamps to find the safest path down the steep rocks. We also enjoyed a quick stop on the dark road to take in the stars. As you can imagine it was very dark out in this remote area and taking a moment to take it all in was wonderful. Turn off the car and step out of the vehicle, you’ll be wowed by the view of stars and the milky way. Worth the ride?
