|Muley Point at Sunrise|
Moki Dugway. The point is about 5 miles out on a bumpy, but easily navigated gravel road. You know you have arrived when the ground drops steeply away.
Suwei and I got out there just as the sun was setting. There was one other person there shooting a few photos, but by the time we got Keira out of the car he had already packed up his stuff and headed back down the road. It would have been nice to get there a little earlier to set up the tent and maybe have a beer, but as it was I went straight for the camera and tripod to see what I could capture.
The next morning the sunrise was equally as impressive as the sunset. Even better since I got up nice and early to watch the entire show unfold.
I've done a bit of research to see where the name, "Muley Point" came from, but have failed to come up with anything conclusive. I did learn that muley means, "hornless". It can also be a hornless cow. I'm guessing the point is named after some guy named Muley. Here are some of the Photos:
