If you are driving to Canyonlands from Moab, Dead Horse Point State Park is worth a stop. Here, visitors stand on the park’s narrow rock promontory 2,000 feet above the Colorado River for phenomenal views of the sandstone formations in nearby Canyonlands National Park. Stop at the visitor center to pick up a Junior Ranger booklet. Take a short self-guided nature walk with young children; older kids might appreciate the 10 miles of hiking trails. Factoid: The famous last scene in the film Thelma & Louise was filmed just south of Dead Horse Point.
