From the prominence of Dead Horse Point, 2,000 feet above a gooseneck in the Colorado River, an ever changing landscape unfurls. Immense vertical cliffs meet with canyons carved by ice, water and wind creating a visual masterpiece. Plants and animals surviving on the edge of existence face many challenges of extreme conditions within this high desert environment. Stories of ancient hunters, resting along the cliff tops while knapping chert in preparation for the next hunt, and cowboys of the late 1800's, chasing wild mustangs onto Dead Horse Point, using the narrow neck to block off the natural corral . What story will you discover on your visit to Dead Horse Point State Park?

Go late afternoon for the best lighting. Pack your tripod and practice HDR. Terrific impression. I've got to go back again.

We had not researched DHP but were so glad we listened when others at our B&B recommended a trip out there. We walked the mile out to the Grand View, and it was worth the effort for the truly breath-taking view.
