Castle Valley

Castle Valley is an open valley that drains into the Colorado River about 14 miles east of Moab, Utah. You can find pictures from a variety of photographers on my Moab Tumblr blog.

During a recent excursion, several friends of mine stayed at the Red Cliffs Lodge. This lodge is on the Colorado River Road (S128) where the Castle Valley Creek drains into the Colorado. The result is that I have multiple pictures of the inn.
