Dirty Devil River Overlook, near Hanksville, Utah

At the bottom of a deep, convoluted canyon, the Dirty Devil River makes its way from Hanksville to Lake Powell. Formed by the Muddy Creek and Fremont River convergence, the river, in this view, is barely visible 2000 ft (600m) below the canyon rim.

Native Americans inhabited these canyons long ago, as evidenced in Horseshoe Canyon to the north. In the late 1800s, Butch Cassidy and his gang used the upper tributaries of the Dirty Devil as hideouts. - Martin van Hemert
