Legends Of The National Parks: Canyonlands' Dead Horse By Aaron Johnson, Joel Anderson, 2022

As the legend has it, the area around Dead Horse State Park and Canyonlands National Park is haunted by the ghosts of dozens of dead horses. Back in the early-1800s, a group of cowboys corralled a herd of wild mustangs in the area of the park now known as "The Neck" or "The Gooseneck." After the cowboys chose the mustangs they wanted to keep, they left the area, forgetting to release the remaining horses. Sadly, dozens of horses succumbed to the elements, trapped in a makeshift corral and unable to reach the nearby Colorado River. To this day, visitors to the arid, remote regions in and around Dead Horse State Park and Canyonlands National Park report hearing the mournful sounds of horses whinnying at night. Some have even reported hearing the thunder of hooves. Anderson Design Group poster artists hand-rendered a vintage-styled poster of what we think this ghostly herd might look like. This classic monster design and vintage poster art is available as a poster print, canvas, metal sign, mini-canvas, or as a notecard or postcard.
