We then drove into Dead Horse Point State Park. According to legend cowboys rounded up a number of wild horses onto the mesa overlooking the Green River and left them there to die.
It was a nice overlook over the river and mesa. Then we drove up to Upheaval Dome which is where geologists think a meteor struck and left a crater. It started snowing hard on the hike up to the overlook so we could barely see the dome. We had a picnic lunch then drove back to town. On the way back I was able to get some nice photos with all of the storm clouds around.
