It was time to leave Cedar Mesa. Just for a bit. To drive outward in my constant yearning for more photographs.
On the way out of Natural Bridges I pulled over onto the wide shoulder of the curve I call Sunset Curve. It’s not listed on the map that way, but it doesn’t have a name so I gave it one.
Moonset from Sunset Point. It’s fitting in that it’s another reflection of the ongoing cycle of the days. Note that the moon was already behind a thin haze of high clouds. It would get worse as far as seeing the moon that morning, but the best was yet to come.
