A River Runs Through It – Dead Horse Point

This is Dead Horse Point at sunrise. One of my many wonderful trips with Ryan Wright over the past couple of years. This is one of the most amazing places at sunrise. This image captured some of the detail along the bottom of the canyon at Dead Horse point, where the Colorado River carved out its curve through the canyon.  It’s one of many horse shoe curves along the river as it runs south. The reflection below of the canyon walls in the river caught my eye and it’s most noticeable in the morning light. It is such a beautiful site and one I’m itching to get back to soon.

      I’m definitely getting the itch to get back out to Utah. Dead Horse Point is a spectacular location. Hope you make it out one day. Thanks for the complement, Edith!

    I happen to think that Dead Horse is better than anything in Canyonlands except for maybe Mesa Arch and this photo illustrates why Rick.

      I think I have to agree. Mesa Arch has gotten too crowded for my liking.
