Got within about 30 years on the road- didn't push it any further



These things are big! Saw a stuffed one in Custer Park and the size of it just blew me away, saw some in the pasture there too but far away from me.
Bisson stew is one of my favorite dishes.
Thank for the pics they are great!

Awesome pictures and showing that it isn't the camera, it's the person taking the pictures. ;-) Okay, Question. When was going though Utah in '07 on my way to California on my then DL1000 , I quickly took this picture of an interesting formation off I 70. But no signs saying who,where,what about it. Do you reconize it and know of it.

It is the northern part of the Upheave/Swell- a really big shift in the crust layers- It runs about 100 miles long (but is most striking from this point down). It forms the eastern side of Capitol Reef Ntl Mon.and goblin valley to the south and is responsible for most of the rock formations in the area. THe Burr Trail to the east of cap reef runs down in the wash along the fold.

Thanks for the info. It aways amazed me when I go back and look at the pics from this trip. I really need to get back there and explore that area. I was in a bit of a rush to meet an appointment at Corbin in Hollister that trip and came back further south on the return leg.

Shot north to south of the same area, just east of where your shot was taken- about as far as you can see down along this line of rock is where Goblin Valley would start


the same upheave on the right on the burr trail- again, looking north to south

It truly was awful - I'd never seen it so bad (been a dry fall)
I had to take several breaks to clear the "brain rattle"

Was mid morning, heading south, sun over the left front so it showed the shadows in the ruts- I swear some were 3-4 inches deep in places

Signal, you're certainly in the neighborhood. That was taken at Muley Point off of UT 261. I'm going to ride in the southern Virginia mountains tomorrow but sure wish I was in southern Utah!
