We get up and have breakfast in our room. Then set out for a day in Canyonlands. We are going to the section called “The Island in the Sky” today. But our first stop will be to Dead Horse Point State Park. It is the famous horseshoe bend in the Colorado River where the story goes that the cowboys chased wild horses onto the end, corralled them, chose the best ones to keep and left the others to die of thirst.
Next we went to Mesa Arch and hiked out to it. It was a pretty arch and some “crazy” people actual walked over the top of it.
We go on to Upheaval Dome next.
We have a picnic lunch with Roger and Karen and share a table with a couple from Munich, Germany. Rick and I then hike out to both Overlook One and Overlook Two.
We end up at the Grand View Point before heading back for our picture at Balanced Rock.
We again end the day with having dinner with 6 others at Zax’s.
