Alstrom Point - Lake Powel - Utah (1409)
Alstrom Point One offers one of the most dramatic views of Lake Powell. Alstrom Point is at the intersection of Glen Canyon Recreation Area and Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument. From this location you get a dramatic view of Gunsight Butte situated in Padre Bay. Gunsight Butte is the most prominent formation in Padre Bay. The top of the butte sits at 4,678 foot above sea level, with the top 1000 foot raising out of the lake. As the top of the butte dips in the middle with two prominent structures on each side, this looks like the back sight on a rifle, thus it's name. In this photograph we have Navajo Mountain in the this sight.
