Nope.
Gooseberry and Dogleg are further away than Lathrop.

The only thing that I'm see in the area of Lanthrop that would have some grassy areas are the adjacent canyons, but i'm not finding the right angle to line it up to the butte in the background.

I think Shafer lines up and the wingate face on the skyline is near the Visitor Center. I am fairly sure, then, that the foreground is all organ rock snadstone and not Cedar Mesa. The CM doesn't extend that far north and goes underground at that point I think. But I have never been north of Gooseberry on the CO River side of the Is. But as far as a prominent landmark out of the pic...hmm...the Neck? Between @XID_AZ and I we've covered all but one other option. It has a very known namesake landmark! So, someone take it if Shafer is wrong!

Is this perchance on the opposite side of the river from Lathrop? Like Lockhart or Horsehead?

I was not going to say this one, because I thought it was further away from Lathrop, but with canyon's twisting around, I guess the neighborhood doesn't have to be solely where their mouths are.
With what @John Morrow said, I'm going to guess Little Bridge Canyon.
On Google Earth I'm convincing myself that I can get a close lineup of things, minus all the walls that look like they are melting, lol.

Bingo!
One of my favorite campsites on the River is at Little Bridge. It's an interesting little canyon, lot's of variety.
You're up.

That's sweet. I never even heard of L. Bridge Canyon. Looks like there are possible breaks in the white rim to gain access. If not along the canyon rim proper, then between it and Lathrop. Lots of navigable looking foot terrain below the rim from one canyon to the other. Lack of H2O limits things some. Unless someone would share along the jeep trail! If anyone knows of some evidence of the ancients in the area, PM me. I don't need details, just another incentive to go on an exploration.

Is this UT-14? I can't seem to locate a spot that qualifies, but the general landscape it goes through gives me this impression.

You're pretty close. I drove a relatively short distance from Highway 14 to get to this highway.
