Photo Spot Details

This spot can be accessed by hiking (& sometimes climbing) the the well established trail up through the debris field to Castleton tower / the rectory.

Castle Valley is one of my favourite locations in Utah because of the dramatic scenery which involves multiple desert towers, valleys and the the colorado river. This location is accessible all year, however in winter snow and/or ice is likely to accumulate, making the trail difficult to hike. Sunset is the best time to photograph this side of Castle valley. Taking a headlamp is advised when coming back down the trail after sunset.
