A winter sunrise at Deadhorse Point, about 2,000 feet above the Colorado River, with the sun glowing on the distant background which is the cliffs of Canyonlands National Park.

Legend tells of horse being corralled atop the cliffs at this prominent point, high above the valley floor. As time went by some horses were left corralled without water, resulting in their deaths; thereby the site inherited the name Deadhorse Point.
