View from the Rim

View from the Rim

Our first trip to the Moab is one we will never forget. Dead Horse State Park for anyone visiting the Moab is a must. When I told people we were going everyone said you have to go to Dead Horse and I see why. I don't know whether we caught it on an exceptional morning or not but this it will always hold a special place in my heart. The sheer magnificence of it all can't be overstated and if one place would tempt me to violate my "no national parks" policy in the summer, this is it.
On this particular morning we were nearly alone except for some rather loud teenagers present at sunrise. After they departed my wife and I had our run of this magnificent park. We made our way to the east side of the park and worked out way west. The snow on the mountains framed against the red rock was to die for. And the space! Words truly don’t do it justice. Taken on the eastern side I call, this Bryce tree, thousands of years old made the perfect backdrop "From the Rim".
