Utah’s Dead Horse Point State Park is perhaps not as well known as its neighbors, Arches National Park and Canyonlands National park. It is smaller but quite picturesque, easily accessible, and well maintained as all of Utah’s parks that we visited were.
Before leaving Moab we stopped at Dead Horse Point right after sunrise. There was almost nobody around, we had a good view of the horseshoe made by the Colorado River as it wound its way through the park, and I had plenty of time to take the following photos. As usual, click on the images to see them in full size.
Here’s the same scene from a different angle.
Before leaving, I saw this bristlecone pine which seemed to be telling us that we should come back another day.
