Dead Horse Point State Park in Utah

Nestled between Arches National Park and Canyonlands National Park near Moab, Utah is Dead Horse Point State Park. This park exists at 6,000 feet of elevation and can be identified by the large horseshoe shape in the canyon 2,000 feet below where the Colorado River winds through hundreds of miles of the Colorado Plateau. This is a beautiful and scenic stop though it can be easily missed on the way into the Islands in Sky District of Canyonlands N.P. It's a small area complete with campgrounds and day use picnic areas located near the edge of the steep canyon walls.

While there are three notable horseshoe shaped canyons in the Colorado Plateau including Dead Horse Point S.P., Horseshoe Bend in Page, AZ, and Goosenecks State Park near Mexican Hat, Utah, there exists many, many more that are far less known yet equally as impressive. Yet, these three deserve a visit. Here's a couple photos from my visit just a few weeks ago.
