Several of you asked about sightings of wild horses on Wild Horse Bench. We didn't see any there, but we saw the mustang herd pictured above in 2005, on the other side of the Green River in the Book Cliffs (about 20 miles distant, as the crow flies). We reached Cold Springs by driving through Nine Mile Canyon to Cottonwood Canyon, then traveling some obscure dirt roads to a plateau.
We hiked to the spring and saw the horses as we were returning to our truck. Their curiosity held them long enough for a couple of photos before they took off.Here is a map of the Cold Springs, Utah, area, which was recently acquired by the Division of Wildlife Resources (DWR):
