Congratulations Jola Leli, this week's Share Your Adventure Photo Contest winner!
Jola snapped this photo at Dead Horse Point State Park in Utah last May.
Dead Horse Point, for the uninitiated, is a photographers' paradise, and a geologist's dreamscape. The park is about nine miles northwest of Moab, Utah, (an area famed for its mountain biking and jeep touring opportunities). From the overlook, you can see 2,000 feet to the Colorado River and across the sandstone to Canyonlands National Park.
Utah.com says it best: The view "defies description and certainly ranks among the best overlooks in the entire world."
It's an easy trail from the visitor center along the rim, and well worth the walk. Being able to hold oneself steady for a picture like Jola's, however, might require a bit more effort!
