This is a site outside of Moab, Utah near the Canyonlands area and somewhat near Arches National Park. It's a 2,000 foot drop to the bottom and the Colorado River. I'm phobic about heights, so it was difficult to photograph. The water barely visible at the bottom is part of a salt reclamation project.

The place gets its name from an incident involving cowboys trapping a herd of mustangs on a narrow point jutting out into the canyon, cutting out the horses they wanted to keep and leaving the rest to die of thirst - within sight of the Colorado River 2,000 feet below.

so i'm told, when you're actually there in person, these places blow you away with the sense of scale and how big everything is
