Alstrom Point, Lake Powell - 1

Alstrom Point, Lake Powell

For landscape photographers who know the Lake Powell area, Alstrom Point is on our bucket list. It is a remote area accessed from a little settlement called Big Water. Late afternoon we drove part way down a dirt road and parked the truck. Then we took the RZRs the rest of the way and stayed at the point overlooking Lake Powell until sunset. (Photo coming soon.) We drove back to the truck, stayed overnight there, then got up really early the next morning and retraced our RZR ride so I could take photos at dawn. (Jeff is such a good sport!) This was our view late at night with the RZR lit by a flashlight. The sky around Lake Powell is dark and beautiful. Seeing shooting stars and other nighttime wonders are common events here.
