The Stud Horse
Located just north of the Arizona-Utah state line, Stud Horse Point is one of the more bizarre landscapes I’ve had the pleasure of experiencing. Multi-colored sandstone and towering hoodoos decorate a steep hillside overlooking miles of open desert leading to the towering walls of Glen Canyon. I recently spent one night of an extended weekend there. Standing approximately thirty to forty feet tall, I have to assume that the main focal point of my composition is the areas namesake. In the distant right hand side of the photo, the southern tip of Lake Powell lies beneath the cliffs.
