Dead Horse Point

We went this morning to Dead Horse Point just outside of Canyonlands National Park. I learned it is called Dead Horse Point because cowboys used to round up wild mustangs, corral them on the natural point and then pick the ones they wanted to take, leaving the rest of the horses to die from lack of water. This caused me some alarm as I pondered the fate of the namesake of Negro Bill Canyon.
