Dead Horse Point, after the dust settled.

View original, sized for the web

Dead Horse Point got its name from a local story about some horse thieves who corralled their stolen horses there while evading capture. The thieves never made it back and the horses, unable to find their way down due to the steep terrain, all died of thirst within view of the Colorado river, 2000 feet below. The point where the horses died is not actually here, but it is nearby.
