Two views of the Gooseneck/Dead Horse Point

The Gooseneck is a sharp bend in the Colorado River about 13 miles west southwest of Moab, Utah.  At Dead Horse Point State Park, there is a fine view of the surrounding terrain from the mesa above, and closer views of the Gooseneck are afforded from the White Rim Road and Schafer Road down in the canyons carved by the River.
