Photographer's Note

This is a viewpoint from Dead Horse Point state park in southeast Utah. The park is so named because of a group of cowboys trapped several wild horses on this point, accessible only from a thin strip of land which they had blocked with brush, then selected the horses they wanted to tame and keep. Unlike the common practice of releasing the remaining horses, these irresponsible cowboys left the poor horses to die of thirst within view of the raging Colorado river 2000 feet below.
