I'm standing in the area known as Dead Horse Point. It's a peninsula of land hundreds of feet above the Colorado River near Moab, UT. The peninsula is connected to the mainland by a very narrow neck - only a few yards wide. Legend has it that early cowboys would herd the wild horses out onto the point and then pile up trees and limbs to keep them corraled while they broke their chosen stallions. On one such operation, the horses were corraled... and then forgotten. They died of thirst with the waters of the Colorado River within view.
Today it's just a stunning place to shoot a sunrise!
