Goosenecks State Park, Utah - Rivers, Canyons, and Cliffs!!! Oh, My!
Not one to disappoint, as I was wandering through Utah, I came across a Goosenecks State Park brochure. It was meant to be!! I must go there!! Stiffy and I hopped on the bikes for a day of riding adventure, only to take a detour to the Gooseneck State Park - where the roads were as winding as the river and the expansive views as amazing as the canyon below. The canyon that I just HAD to see for myself....
Gooseneck State Park Description - https://stateparks.utah.gov/parks/goosenecks/discover/
On the edge of a deep canyon above river is a gooseneck, this small park affords impressive views of one of the most striking examples of an entrenched river meander on the North American continent. The San Juan River twists and turns, flowing a distance of over six miles while advancing one and half miles west on its way to Lake Powell. Gaze at the results of 300 million years of geological activity, where the San Juan River winds and carves its way through the desert 1,000 feet below.
Worth the stop!!!
