Highway 128, one of the most scenic roads in the West, parallels the Colorado River from Interstate 70 through the majestic Utah desert to Moab. I simply stepped out of the car to take this shot through the hazy cliffs of the Colorado Plateau sixty miles south to the lordly La Sal Mountains on the eastern border of the state. The highest peak, Mount Peale, reaches 12,721 feet above sea level.
