Colorado & Utah 2021: Dead Horse Point State Park

Continuing on our epic day-before-Thanksgiving drive into Utah, Dan and Danielle steered us to our next stop: Dead Horse Point State Park. They promised sweeping views, a nice spot for our picnic lunch, and “Uncle Dan’s Potassium Lecture.”

And delivered on all three: here’s the view from our lunch spot (right?!) complete with potash pools (see above, icy blue pools in the canyon). Dan treated us to a dissertation about the chemical properties of potash and the history of potassium in the United States until Steve and I ruined it by singing Borat’s national anthem. #IYKYK.

Kazakhstan, number one exporter potassium, all other countries have inferior potassium, bum-ba-dum-bum-bum-bum-bum.

We’re sorry, Dan. We promise to listen next time.

Eventually, Dan gave up on his potassium lecture and pointed us to this incredible sight: I’d always wanted to see a horseshoe bend!

Lunch spots don’t get better than this!

Next week: last Colorado post (for now; we’ll be back!) and it’s a fitting conclusion to an epic trip.
