This is a nice place to visit. However, if you go to Deadhorse Point State Park first, this park is a little disappointing. If you're in the area, sure, go see it.

It's a State Park and will cost you $5 per car, but worth it. It's hard to get it all in one picture, but I merged two wide angle shots, which came out very nice. Also a decent shot from the point way off on the right side.

Stop her while you are on the road to Monument Valley. Its a top view looking down into a canyon of a winding river. The features are very chiseled and unique. Yes, like a goose neck! There are no facilities here, but I think I remember a camping site.

The view from the top of the Goosenecks is unbelievable! And you can drive right to it! There's nothing quite like it, either. The San Juan has carved through 1000 feet of earth and it is beautiful!

We stopped here on the way from Mexican Hat to the Mogi Dugway & the natural arches national park. A great place to see just what the power of moving water can achieve over the ages. There is a self pay entrance fee unless you have an annual national pass. It took us about 40 minutes with travel & viewing.

These gorgeous river meanders are in most geology text books. The Colorado river has gently cut the Honaker Limestone (an old sea with early stromatolite algae fossils). A must-see. BRING CASH Toilets available.

Three gooseneck-like bends of the San Juan river deep down a 500 ft canyon. This place is similar to Horseshoe Bend of Colorado river near Lake Powell, but definitely more intriguing and breathtaking. On a clear day, monument valley can be seen clearly on the horizon. About 30 mins east of Monument Valley along US 163; definitely worth the trip.

Well worth the visit to see one of the best examples of river meandering possible. There is a small access fee to be paid but well worth the geography. There are public toilets. Besides the great view there is little to do, unless one wants to camp, but if you are in the area this should be included

At the Gooseneck State park you get a nice overlook of the Colorado river meandering through the landscape. The place is quit photogenic.
