Dead Horse Point State Park

Dead Horse Point State Park got its name from the its use by the frontier ranchers who would drive wild herds of horses out onto the narrow point and then capture the ones they wanted. Invariably, some would die in the process. It is an unimaginably picturesque place despite the morbid name. From the point, you get an almost 360-degree view over the Colorado and Green Rivers where they meet in nearby Canyonlands National Park.
