Share Our World: Dead Horse State Park

What a cool State Park! We were in Southern Utah see the National Parks I am so glad that @jarvie took us to other cool places like Goblin Valley and Dead Horse State Park.

Just look at the geology! @eolinde what do you think?

Dead Horse State Park

For one of the #photogames I had people tell a story about why it is called Dead Horse State Park. Here is a link to that post if you are as interested in the name as I am.

This is the first view you see coming from the parking lot.

There is a trail that goes along the canyon's edge.

Hiking trails

We did the very easy and mostly paved rim trail and went from the visitor Center around to the Rim Overlook. I considered it more walking than hiking. Hey this map says hiking trials!

Got a cool retro picture of Kimberly.

Potash

What is potash? That is a question I was asking myself too. This place made me very curious!
For another @photogames I hosted I had people guess what the shiny thing was in the distance.

What is it Wednesday

@derekkind answered and linked a awesome video. I would suggest it if you would like to learn about potash and how it is mined in the desert of Utah.

Dead Horse Point

While there are places to look out on the trail this area had a great lookout area. Can you see the horse?

Dead Horse State Park is a great stop if you are going to Canyonlands and Arches.
