That's the Hite Crossing Bridge in the background on UT-95 (for those interested, Google Maps link below).   This view is on the North side of the Colorado looking East.

When I came through there a cop was making a traffic stop at the turnout at the base of the outcrop on the right.  Sort of ruined the moment for me. 

We are so blessed in North America to have these epic landscapes in CO, UT, AZ, MT, WY ID, Eastern OR and CA to ride through.  Not only great roads, but spectacular other worldly landscapes that even the movies couldn't make up.  Even though it's tempting to "pour on the coal" through these places, I try to take it easy at times to soak in the scenery - it's just too good to pass up.  Time for another road trip!  Come on vaccine . . . !  :woohoo:

Last time I was on this road it was ~4:00 in the morning. There were about a bazillion stars in the sky but I was too cold to stop and enjoy 'em. I'd spent a chilly night on the side of the road a few miles east after finding there was nary a room to be had in Blanding. Fortunately, dawn had come as I neared Hanksville - time for coffee.
