Dead Horse Point

We headed over to Canyonlands before leaving for Mesa Verde and checked out Dead Horse Point… legend has it that several cowboys maneuvered a herd of horses onto this point and after selecting the ones they wanted to keep, they barricaded the narrow opening and left the rest to die from lack of water! I sure hope it is just a legend… what a cruel thing to do if it isn’t. 

Dead Horse Point was gorgeous though,’in spite of the horrific legend, and had a spectacular view of the Colorado Riverfar down below. We spent the day in Canyonlands while taking another marathon number of photographs and had a 3 hour drive to Mesa Verde last night. 

Heading out to see the Mesa Verde Indian ruins today and will stay one more night before heading home.
