Road to Fisher Towers - Colorado River Scenic Byway, Utah

While Moab is known for its proximity to two fabulous national parks (Arches and Canyonlands), the star of the area may well be the Colorado River Scenic Byway. The road also known as Utah State Road 128 or River Road connects Moab with Grand Junction, Colorado. One of the great stops along River Road is Fisher Towers, about 21 miles from Moab. The Towers are made up of sandstone and are very popular with photographers and rock climbers.

I went out for a drive along River Road in the late evening to catch the golden hour light that I knew the sunset would deliver. I pulled over as soon as I turned off of River Road to use the dirt road as a leading line to the Towers.
