  (1) a visitor centre used to be here, not far from the south viewpoint and highway #9.   (2) the entrance to the west leg of Horseshoe canyon.   (3) at the bottom is the shadow of the cone shaped formation I am standing on (to the right of the peak is my shadow).   (4) entrance to the east leg of horseshoe canyon.   (5) south viewpoint, next to highway #9.   (6) back to where the visitor centre was.



The photo was taken from the top of a cone shaped badland formation.
Use this link to see that viewpoint and the environmental damage (80 kb) that
has been done by people climbing it. Obviously, I wasn't the first person
who realized that it is in a key location with a breathtaking view.
