Views of Moab, Utah on Friday.


By PamSB

Dead Horse Point.  The first was last Sunday with the CA wildfire smoke obscuring everything  and the second was taken from the same spot on Monday after a morning rain.  iPhone pictures so not the best quality, but you can see the effect of the smoke several states away.  P.S.  This was the place Thelma and Louise “drove” off the cliff.

Moab and Canyon Country is beautiful, but nothing compares to Glen Canyon that I had privilege to traverse before Lake Powell and Page Dam! It's stunning views made it location site for many films, including "Greatest Story Ever Told" being filmed when we were there in 1962, "Soldiers Three," etc. It's difficult to access now and only its upper canyons are visible, such as via Escalante to Hole in the Rock landing. The ongoing drought has dropped Lake Powell 50 ft., so some side canyons again accessible by boat, such as Cathedral in the Desert, but only its upper canyon is visible...so sad!

Thanks for the photo PamSB - iconic & smokey. Moab is seeing smoke from fires to the west and east. The Pine Gulch Fire (largest fire in CO history) is one of them. You can see the smoke over UT by scrolling down on this page to "Band 1" and clicking on "Animated Loop" ...... https://www.star.nesdis.noaa.gov/goes/sector.php?sat=G16&sector=sr

Love that area. The drive on Hwy 24 through Bryce, Escalante, Torrey , Canyonlands, and Moab has so much to offer. In winter better to drive I70. One of my favorite winter hikes is the Devil's Garden route at the north end of Arches (need to wear microspikes). But so much building has happened in town, it's being crushed under the weight of tourism. And under Trump, south-eastern UT is being carved up by mining interests. I hope Bears Ears will be able to regain it's former boundaries - what an insult to the native tribes who came together for that. An area so rich in ancient cultural resources needs to be preserved, not mined for uranium.

Not true. Mined in quantity yes, discovered no. Uranium was 'discovered' in 1789 in Germany. But its ores had been used for 1000s of years before that as a colorant for glass and ceramics.

Incredible views. Island In The Sky (Canyonlands) is so beautiful.

Too strange. It’s been years since I’ve thought about Moab, UT. Then, yesterday, random online stuff, I was reading how some religious people equated the word Moab with evil (news to me) and Moab T-shirts were said to advertise incest and so on. Interesting that this post came up today. There’s a Salt Lake City souvenir T -shirt that reads SL (and then below that, which I won’t try to get lined up here) are the state letters—-UT. Ah . . . T-shirt “art.” There’s a LOT to like about UT. (Cool photos.)

It wasn't QAnon, but somehow ended up following online trail from either TikTok or Sporcle.

MB, you need to stay away from the QAnon sites, they'll rot your brains and way worse than Fox already does.
