La Sal View - Moab, Utah

La Sal Mountain Loop, Moab, Utah

I have visited Moab quite the number of times over the years. I am attracted by the colors of the American Southwest and the diversity of its rock formations. Moab is a great home base for viewing numerous attractions, from Arches National Park (one of my favorites) to the Colorado River Scenic Byway, to Dead Horse State Park (one of the most iconic views of the southwest) and the vastness of Canyonlands National Park. You would think that I have seen it all, but, when I took a photo tour with my buddy Jeff Clow, he showed me another side of Moab.

When you are in the Moab area, you always seem to have the LaSal Mountain range as a backdrop. Until the tour, I had never ventured into the mountains themselves to explore. This shot was taken during our explorations last March and shows that desert is not the only thing within a short driving distance of Moab. I thought I would post this image today, as Jeff is off with two other groups soon that I couldn't make. I will be with them in spirit.
