The route to Alstrom Point can be a little tricky, although signage has improved since my first visit. Along the way, numerous spectacular and colorful formations are passed.
This location has become popular with photographers because it overlooks Gunsight Bay, Gunsight Butte, Padre Bay and Navajo Mountain. It's easy to see how Gunsight Butte got its name.
As the sun got lower, shadows covered the view below the 800 foot cliff. You can see a houseboat tied up to shore across Gunsight Bay. The water level in the lake is the lowest I've seen it in the years I've been coming here. It is currently 108 feet below full pool, or about 45% of capacity. This is about the expected seasonal low, with spring runoff starting soon to rebuild the pool.
Here's a closeup of the houseboat, as well as a red-tailed hawk that happened to fly over our position.
The sunset itself was nothing special, but that didn't stop me from taking a photo.
