"Alstrom Point Hoodoos"
August 2012, Lake Powell, Utah
Two rock formations known as hoodoos overlook beautiful Lake Powell from this vantage point on Alstrom Point. Alstrom Point can only be reached by traveling over a 25 mile dirt road from nearby Page. Most passenger cars can drive the road except for the last 3 miles, where high clearance becomes mandatory. In rainy weather the road is impassable to all vehicles, even 4 wheel drive. In the background 10,000' Navajo Mountain is surrounded by thunderstorms.
I spent 2 nights primitive camping on Alstrom and I had the whole place to myself. No doubt the threat of thunderstorms kept everyone else out. I got pounded by a very strong storm one night, but the clouds and colors spawned by the storm made it all worthwhile.
