state park in Utah, United States

Goosenecks State Park is in Utah.

UnderstandEdit

Experts say that historically this area was a rather flat land, with the San Juan river already finding its meandering way through it. But that was millions of years ago. The idea is almost unimaginable when looking at the dramatically entrenched meanders that you'll find here today. They are the result of a period of natural uplift combined with the ever faster streaming river. The water cut deeply into the risen ground, creating the stunning landscapes of today.

Tourist facilities are limited to a few picnic tables and vault toilets.
