Here’s how I’m going to do this. Today I’ll post pictures I took with my smartphone camera, pretty much in the order I took them, as I drove through the Park. These are all full frame (little or no zoom) and give the best impression of what you’d see yourself. I have lots of photos I took with the digital camera but I’ll post them another day. They will show some of these formations, either in more detail or from different angles, as well as formations which may have been further off the road.
This is group 1 of 3.
The first photo was taken looking down at Route 191, which is the road I took off the interstate to get to the Park entrance. The town of Moab is located about 5 miles further down Route 191.
As soon as you get in to the Park you start climbing. The Park is located to the left of this view.
