Alstrom Point offers one of the most dramatic views of Lake Powell. Alstrom Point is located at the intersection of Glen Canyon Recreation Area and Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument. You get a picturesque view of Gunsight Butte situated in Padre Bay with beautiful Navajo Mountain in the background from this location.
Gunsight Butte is the most prominent formation in Padre Bay. The top of the butte sits at 4,678 feet above sea level, with the top 1000 feet rising 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 this sight.
