Along the Colorado River - Potash Road, Moab, Utah

Moab is such a target-rich area for photographers and visitors. It is home to two national parks (Arches and Canyonlands), a stellar state park (Dead Horse) and a scenic byway (Colorado River Scenic Byway). With so many sights and attractions to visit, many miss or don't know about this little road that parallels the Colorado River. Potash Road is about 14 miles long, and, in addition to meandering along the Colorado, has some of the best rock climbing in the southwest. I have never been there when there weren't rock climbers testing the sandstone cliffs. Near the end of the road, there is also a natural arch named Jug Handle Arch. This photo was shot on a dreary evening, but the clouds were interesting and the Colorado River was relatively still, allowing for some nice reflections.
