WW: Dead Horse Point State Park {Linky}

Dead Horse Point State Park is in Moab, Utah. It features a dramatic overlook of the Colorado River and Canyonlands National Park.

The park is so named because of its use as a natural corral by cowboys in the 19th century.

Opened to the public as a state park in 1959. The park's elevation is 5,900 feet.


There was this blue water below that was so perfect.



When we got to another spot there was green, murky water. The rock was so much darker in that area, in comparison to the other area.
 




Up where we were was pretty to! I saw an animal scurry past me. It was too fast to see what it was for sure. I know it's dry up in that spot, so there aren't a lot of animals.


Isaak- "Take a picture of me Mom!" Mica kept running all over.

The view was breathtaking!





The view is surreal. Daddy compared it to the Grand Canyon. I've never been to the Grand Canyon. For those of you that have been there, is it similar?
