Dead Horse Point at Sunrise, Dead Horse Point State Park, Utah, USA
Dead Horse Point State Park is a state park of Utah, USA, featuring a dramatic overlook of the Colorado River and Canyonlands National Park. The park covers 5,362 acres (21.70 km2) of high desert at an altitude of 5,900 feet (1,800 m). Dead Horse Point was named by early Mormon pioneers for a rock formation at the base of the plateau. It is clearly visible from the main overlook and looks like a dead white horse lying on its side. The plateau is surrounded by sheer cliffs 2,000 feet (610 m) high with only a narrow neck of land 30 yards (27 m) wide connecting the mesa to the main plateau.
