Eleven-Years Ago (28-September-2008) — Utah

Gone to See American 2008 Road Trip. Driving from Grand Staircase – Escalante National Monument to Bryce National Park.

Double Rainbow in Utah. While driving between Grand Staircase – Escalante National Monument and Bryce National Park on Utah Highway 12 I saw a rainbow in my rear view mirror. I quickly pulled over just outside of Cannonville Utah and started taking some images. I was lucky that there was a dark background in the sky so I could begin to see the double rainbow. Before the rainbow was gone, many other cars pulled over to admire the view.

Nine-Years Ago (02-August-2010) — Utah

Gone to See America August 2010 Road Trip. Day 2: Crystal Geyser near Green River, Utah.

I returned to Crystal Geyser in the morning since I didn’t see it erupt the previous evening. The interesting thing about Crystal Geyser is that it is a cold geyser, powered by carbon dioxide. I did see a minor eruption, then hit the road for Great Basin National Park in Utah. For a bigger eruption check out  11-May-2009.
