  • Absolutely impressive. You can walk out and look down on three sides. Beautiful and the sky is amazing.  more »
  • A unique little plateau perfect for overlooking. Large enough for a few tents. Views on three sides and a scary perch to climb to. I got wobbly legs standing near the edge.  more »

  • Shafer Canyon overlook is a great overlook. Really nice place love the rock and the colors of the rock. Hope to visit back out here in the years to come. We could come out and visit out west every year. If my review helps you in any way can you PLEASE leave me a thumbs up like on my review. Thank you.
  • One of many great photo spots in Canyonlands NP. Try to hit it at the end of a clear day at sunset. The lighting is awesome for shots
