Foto Friday

Rising Sun hitting Factory Butte

A photo of Factory Butte in Hanksville Utah with the rising sun hitting it

In the tradition of my ‘Foto Friday’ series, I will continue posting a photograph every Friday. These photographs may be new or older ones I’ve recently worked on.

If you’d like to view more of my photography, you can do so on my dedicated photography portfolio or Instagram.

While many people know and love the Moab area in Utah for the Slickrock, canyons, red rocks, and beautiful scenery, not as many people know about the Hanksville area. Maybe that’s a good thing, but I highly recommend finding some time to check the area out. Hanksville is a small town with only a few places to eat and stay, but I think its growing and could easily turn into the ‘next’ destination in addition to Moab.

Hanksville Utah

Hanksville offers the perfect basecamp for adventures in southern Utah. Whether it’s hiking, biking, camping, boating, climbing, off-roading, or just simply sightseeing, Hanksville is the place to be! With its close proximity to Capitol Reef National Park, Goblin Valley State Park, Canyonlands National Park and many more incredible locations, Hanksville is the perfect place to start! Hanksville is also home to a variety of businesses that cater to outdoor enthusiasts, including food, fuel, lodging, and off-road rentals. In addition, the neighboring Henry Mountains makes it a popular destination for wildlife watching or hunting. Visitors can often spot mule deer, pronghorn antelope, and buffalo in the nearby hills. Whether you’re looking for an action-packed vacation or a relaxing getaway, Hanksville is the perfect place to stay.
