I have been to a lot of very beautiful places during my travels over the last 2 1/2 years, and there is no where that I can think of where mother nature puts on a more spectacular show than in the Moab area, to include Arches and Canyonlands National Parks, and Dead Horse State Park. Today we went deep into the heart of the Islands in the Sky section of Canyonlands N.P. as well as Dead Horse State Park. We drove in two different 4 X 4 vehicles over some pretty rough roads, up the sheer side of a mountain, and saw again the wonderful show of red rocks, unusual rock formations, and the Colorado River as it winds it's way thru the red rock country.
Both Nancy and I think that the State of Utah has done a magnificent job with Dead Horse State. There are more than a mile of easily accessible trails that take you safely along the edge providing views from all kinds of angles from about 6,200 ft above sea level.
The pictures will tell the rest of this story.
