San Rafael a Swell of a Drive

Sometimes the best 4WD trips are those taken mostly on a whim. Such was the case with my recent visit to the San Rafael Swell of Utah. It is a fascinating area, and one that offers a tremendous amount of four wheeling opportunities.

Running right up the interior of Emery County in central Utah, the San Rafael Swell is part of a large and intriguing land mass. Tens of millions of years ago massive upheavals in the planet’s crust created a “dome” of rock—a swell in scientific terms.

May you live in interesting times

As the old Chinese curse has it: “May you live in interesting times,”.  While the Chinese connection is subject to much debate, the phrase is very appropriate given the chaotic actions of the current times.

Today, President Trump announced that the United States will pull out of the Paris Accord.  And, collective gasps and frantic blustering predicting apocalyptic catastrophe quickly filled the air.
