Goosenecks of the San Juan River

Goosenecks of the San Juan River

These are considered the longest set of entrenched meanders in the world. Six miles of river are compressed into a straight line distance of one and a half miles. The meanders originated on a flat flood plain, then maintained their course as the Monument Upwarp slowly raised the plateau surface until the river was in a thousand foot deep canyon.
