Once upon a time, cowboys used to round up mustangs here. They herded them onto a promontory that formed a natural corral. They picked which horses they wanted and left the others to find their own way off the Point. According to legend, some of the horses stayed and died of thirst.
It was too windy to truly enjoy the park the day I visited. Winds were gusting to 50 mph, hard enough to blow open the heavy doors to the visitor center. Sand hitting bare skin at that speed stings quite a bit. I did a drive through, leaving the car just long enough to take one photo, get the information I needed to claim the Earth Cache find, and even hunted one traditional cache. Can't see it?

Trade items at Utah state parks are stocked by park personnel. You are encouraged to take a souvenir and requested not to leave anything in return. (TB's are okay.) I wonder if that has something to do with inappropriate items some people leave. I've seen pocket knives, liquor, candy...all no-no's. Kids hunt these things. Please don't leave an item you wouldn't want a child to discover. Also, no food and nothing that smells like food. The website reports that one cache was destroyed by an animal because there was mint-flavored dental floss inside.
