dead horse point state park

the last day of the trip entailed driving back north, through moab, and into the Island in the Sky section of Canyonlands. as many times as we'd been to this area, neither phil nor i had been in this section of the park. it's known for it's incredible views, or so we had heard, and we were certainly not let down! most of the roads and shorter hikes are up high, so the view is phenomenal! the river down there is the Colorado, which winds it's way through the park before it meets up with the Green River. we actually ended up camping in Dead Horse Point State Park, as the camp sites are easier to get and the views are just as good or better! since we were pretty tired by this point, we took it easy on the last day and just went to check out the overlooks and played in camp. speaking of playing in camp, the Easter Bunny made a surprise appearance at our last camp sight. more on that later!
