Dead Horse Point, after the dust settled.

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

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.

INCREDIBLE SHOT. Amazing for those like me who have never seen this type of terrain in the flesh, and probably for many who have.

Easily one of the most staggeringly impressive photos I've seen in a long while. I wish I could give it more thsan just an L+F! All the best, Andy
