The abrupt east face of the San Rafael Swell where I-70 pierces it. Outside of Boulder, Colorado you'd be hard pressed to find a better example of hogbacks.

    I think the San Raphael Reef is the most amazing geologic formation I've ever seen, just for reasons of it's sheer awesome and majestic beauty. For anyone interested, there's an extensive post on the geology of this and the surrounding region at Written In Stone: written-in-stone-seen-through-my-l ens.blogspot.com/2011/08/flight-plan-part-i-geolog y-of-san.html Will open in

    This photo is of a rest area west of Green River, CO. This is a just a beautiful area. The scenery from Green River to to this point and further West is just fantastic. Taking UT-24 south to Hanksville provides additional views of the Swell. With regard to the Hawaii trailer tag, I believe some states allow a trailer registration for out of state owners. Hawaii might be one of them?

    a smig later and those trailers would have been in need of a tractor, and how did that trailer make it to Colorado, that is obviously a Hawaii tag.
