“Goosenecks State Park is a state park in the U.S. state of Utah, overlooking a deep meander of the San Juan River. The park is located near the southern border of the state a short distance from Mexican Hat, Utah. Millions of years ago, the Monument Upwarp forced the river to carve incised meanders over 1,000 feet (300 m) deep as the surrounding landscape slowly rose in elevation. Eroded by water, wind, frost, and gravity, this is a classic location for observing incised meanders.” ~~ Wikipedia, Goosenecks State Park
Here’s a few photos on Meandering Passage of deep meanders of the San Juan River. The park was an unexpected find and quite impressive.
There are rough campsites along the edge of the incised meanders which offered a breath-taking view but probably need a warning not to sleepwalk during the night.
The park itself is undeveloped, which for my taste was more a plus then a minus. Worth the drive if your are in the area of Mexican Hat, Utah.
