Dixie........Hmmmm....

Dixie has (like many Natl Forests) several parts/sections scattered about. Any particular city region? I'll see whats in the photo bank.

Capitol Reef to Escalante/Boulder Mountain is through Dixie NF on Hwy 12

(there is a dirt crazy old road from Boulder toward Escalante know as "the devil's backbone" but don't have any pics I can dig out- yet)

Dixie Natl Forest also involves the area 'round Zion, Cedar Breaks, and some above Bryce.....

I was supposed to go to Moab this year but life got in the way and I ended up in PA instead

Lovin' the red rocks. Wow!

OK, so we've seen the serious pose, how about a smile?

Nice bike

Okay- Like most, way too many Moab-ish pics, so I'll sort them out some by area.......

First, Canyonlands- Island in the Sky region

Cool morning, sorry I guess I don't smile much in the self-potraits

Looking east-ish, sun angles and camera lenses really can only touch the scale

This one is actually from Dead Horse Point State Park, just up the road, looking toward potash

So.....

The Northwest corner of the state is an old (and in the case of the Great Salt and Stink Lake, still) lake bed. Mostly flat and arid, and is very sparsely populated... Box Elder County is bigger than a couple NE states


[IMG][/IMG]
Flying at better than posted limits northwest of Tremonton- typical terrain/road

[IMG][/IMG]
Brings us to ATK, home of the Space Shuttle rocket booster motors (and other NASA massive horsepower engines)

Over the hill a few miles.....

[IMG][/IMG]
Golden Spike Natl Monument, Promontory Utah......site of the completion of the trans-continental railroad- They still pull out the trains for pics

[IMG][/IMG]
Mollies in Snowville has some good home-done-right pies

You too
I did a two year cardiac residency after med school then ran like the dickens after working 60 hours a week Now I specialize in diabetes and lipids, although that is morphing into a cardiometabolic specialty pretty quick. Love the work and the hours


What's those big mountains in the Canyonlands?

The La Sal mountains are way off in the distance in a couple pics (east of Moab)......the others are just part of the crazy elevation changes/plateaus that make up much of Canyonlands.....

For example- The drop off the cliff at Dead Horse point is like 1600-1800 feet , Island in the sky just down the road is similar.

Late tonight, thought I'd add another red cliff mecca- Zion

"A man can worship here as easily as in any of europe's grand cathedrals- THIS is Zion," Ebenezer, and early mormon settler

[IMG][/IMG]
Some of the lower cliffs just out of Springdale

[IMG][/IMG]
"the three prophets"

[IMG][/IMG]
Love the red pavement that twists

[IMG][/IMG]
Checkerboard Mesa

[IMG][/IMG]
Angel's Landing, a truly terror-inducing climb to the top with narrow 12-18 inch paths cut into the rock face, some sections have chains anchored into the rock for stability- the 1000 ft fall off the rock face never ends well

[IMG][/IMG]
Pillars near the Lodge toward the narrows

Hope you've enjoyed tonight's chapter, and a heartfelt thanks for watching and for the comments

I spent all of my summers through the 70's and early 80's working for a friend on his farm in Snowville. Some of the best memories of my life. Spent a lot of time and ate a lot of meals at Mollie's. Boated Lake Powel out of Hite Marina in the mid 90's, fished Strawberry Res. spent some time camping east of Heber City and lived in Santaquin area for a couple of years, was just in the Moab area a couple of weeks ago.
Thanks for the memories.

Snowville (likely) hasn't changed much - All the way out to Park Valley, etc is still only scattered clusters of ranches, and really thin cattle/turkey vultures and the odd snake. Folks out there still ship the older children into Tremonton for high school, living with host families during the week.

My 12 yo son caught a 23 inch trout out of Strawberry Res two weeks ago- it was tasty . Santaquin , good apple farm adn that "One Man Band" diner is pretty good.
