We Arrived to Dead Horse Point State Park

Dead Horse Point, Colorado River

Driving to Dead Horse Point near Moab, Utah, is an adventure by itself. It can take several hours to several days depending on how often you want to stop and explore the Canyonlands. We stopped many times, hiked towards Colorado River, along the mesas and canyons and took some photos of Tafoni Formations, a really neat cracked rock, and this unusual blue holly.

Here is another picture of this glamorous plant:

We pulled over at Castle Creek to take some photos of this smooth cliff that is frequently used by practicing rock climbers.

And this immaculate grass glowing in the sunlight.

The cliff followed us for many miles as we traveled toward Potash. This shot is looking back where we came from.

Another stunning landscape of Colorado River and Perriott Mesa in the background.

After a few more turns, we encountered the next page of our journey. Intrepid Potash is a very impressive operation that starts here and continues all the way to Dead Horse Point National Park.

Many more balanced rocks were encountered on the way. This one almost smashed out minivan.

He managed to stop it just on time. Whew!

Just kidding 🙂

A few more cracks and crevices.

Dead Horse Canyon

And we finally arrived to the handsome Dead Horse Canyon.

We are ready to settle in for the night. We love living on the edge.

More adventures of the Southwestern frontier are coming up.
