Dead Horse Point State Park

This park, en route to the Island in the Sky, was named for a herd of wild horses once corralled and forgotten on this isolated point 2,000ft above the Colorado River. All of the equines died of thirst within view of the river. Some consider the sunset views from this point, light tracing across the multi-hued sandstone canyons, cliffs and mesas, to be among the most dramatically beautiful in all the Canyonlands.
