      The approach road into Canyonlands National Park from the northern side is Utah-313. Leaving the Island in the Sky Road (which goes into the park) proceed to the end of the road at the Dead Horse Point scenic viewpoint. Along the way, stop to view the two mesas named after the Civil War ironclads, the Monitor and the Merrimac. The Dead Horse Point State park provides a view over the plateau above the Colorado River and also has a great view of the potash evaporation ponds and the La Sal Mountains to the east.

      If you go:
      Retrace your route to the turn-off to the national park for more gorgeous red rock country views. The state park offers a variety of special events throughout the year.
