A Must-Do tour in Kanab. Cutler Point and The Great Chamber
Wowzers! Photo Op extraordinaire.
Awesome jeep tour with my favorite photo spot yet! You will love this tour just a little North-East of Kanab.
Cutler Point and The Great Chamber
There are so many cool places around Kanab and I haven’t even heard of a lot of them. Cutler Point is one of those. Jeff and Julie Jensen from Coral Cliff Tours took us out for a quick morning Jeep tour to this easy attraction. Cutler Point is a large promontory in the White Cliffs level of The Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument. #HiddenGem So dramatic and impressive! but wait….
We parked at the base of this giant, then just a short, full sun, quarter-mile walk from the Jeep (kinda steep, sandy, rocky, near the end), and we were at the Great Chamber in Cutler Point. I just couldn’t say “Wow” enough times. This huge alcove has one GIANT sand dune in the middle. By standing in the back of the alcove and shooting up to the top of the dune, you will get amazing photos. Our self made “Petroglyph people” were my favorites.
Great photos inside and out
The Great Chamber is amazing, but it is not the only thing. A great view of the valley kept me mesmerized as the clouds rolled by and made the panorama below us constantly evolve. Sunbeams spotlighted the Red Butte to the West and Johnson Canyon to the East. The scale of this landscape is simply remarkable. Making it a true gem and a challenge for photographers. Don’t forget your wide-angle lens if ya got em’.
I call this a Must-do excursion for a couple of reasons –
– Fairly quick and easy, we were out and back within 2 hours.
– Instagram Envy worthy photos
– The scope of the landscape!
– And it certainly didn’t hurt that we did this tour on a beautiful spring morning when the wildflowers were out.
Don’t EVEN think about doing this in your own vehicle! Deep sand and way too many side roads to keep track of. Getting stuck in this outback area could turn dangerous quickly. Plus Jeff and Julie know how to take just the right photos of your group. So don’t think twice, get a guide on this one guys.
Also – Do not plan on doing this in the middle of a hot summer day. Temps can be brutal and you will not enjoy this so much. But don’t forget the Southern Utah mantra – no matter when you go – plenty of Water and Sunscreen folks!
