What can I say, Utah is AMAZING. I have learned to love the desert and how beautiful it is. Having just finished two books by Edward Abbey, Desert Solitaire and Monkey Wrench Gang, my trip to Utah a few weeks ago did not disappoint.
I know we all had a blast in this magical place.
“Water, water, water....There is no shortage of water in the desert but exactly the right amount , a perfect ratio of water to rock, water to sand, insuring that wide free open, generous spacing among plants and animals, homes and towns and cities, which makes the arid West so different from any other part of the nation. There is no lack of water here unless you try to establish a city where no city should be.”
~Edward Abbey, A Desert Solitaire: A Season in the Wilderness
This might have been the happiest moment on the entire trip. Never have I seen such peculiar and spectacular land formations in this area of Canyonlands National Park.
