Goosenecks State Park

The Goosenecks State Park is a state park in the southeast of the U.S. state of Utah, not far from Mexican Hat and Monument Valley. From the vantage point ( which is at about 1,500 m above sea level ), you can take a look at the San Juan River, which has now dug well 300 m deep in the course of millions of years. The river winds its way back and forth over a distance of 8 km, and places just back a straight line of 1.6 km.

Unlike most state and national parks, there is no visitor center here. For the access to the lookout point, however, is also free. At the viewpoint there are a few simple tables and benches for picnics as well as toilets. Bird's see the structures that the San Juan River has created such as the goose necks, hence the name Goosenecks State Park ( see also receiving the NASA under the links).
