Dead Horse Point State Park, Utah

 
A trip to Dead Horse Point State Park is a must for families visiting the northern reaches of Canyonlands. Here, 300 million years of geological history are revealed. Yet you need not be a geology buff to enjoy this small corner of paradise. Dead Horse Point boasts the best views of the Colorado River from the rim. And the panorama is even more spectacular than the images on the movie screen be it Thelma and Louise or Mission Impossible II. Be sure to pack a picnic dinner. Sunsets at this Utah state park are extraordinaire.

When a Moab resident suggested the views from Dead Horse Point State Park rival the Grand Canyon we thought he was touting a local park. Not so! Here, the Colorado River cuts a deep, narrow gorge creating a panorama that is rim to rim as well as 2000 feet deep.
