Dead Horse Point State Park, UT

About 30 miles west of Moab is a beautiful, remote state park bordering Canyonlands National Park called Dead Horse Point.

We took a drive there yesterday to check it out, since several people had recommended we see it. It did not disappoint, in fact it was one of the prettiest canyons we’ve seen.P5220044


There has been a front hanging over the area the past couple days, and it looked like rain, but we managed to hike along the rim before the rain started.


The final scene of the movie Thelma and Louise was actually filmed here. What was supposed to be the Grand Canyon was really the canyon here at Dead Horse Point. P5220052 P5220060 P5220064


Would like to go back and camp there sometime and hike the rest of the trails.
