Meandering Goosenecks

Turns out, the Dead Horse Point would not be the only gooseneck we should come across during our US trip – meaning the geological term used for sinuous canyons and valleys, not the literal curved neck of a goose that these formations resemble.

We actually did not see one goose on our US trip. And we may have merely spent an hour in Goosenecks State Park in Utah but I still believe that it is worth a blog entry. The panorama I took is comprised out of 9 different photos and shows the San Juan River twisting its way through the park’s canyon. And even though I was impressed by the Colorado River meandering through the Dead Horse Point, the more pronounced curves of the San Juan River, were a far more astonishing sight for me.
