One of the cool things was a day spent out in the Utah BLM lands with Eric of The Warrior Class and Angus, his trusty sidekick.
We loaded up one morning before it got too hot and drove off into the high desert.
The first thing that they took me to see what this spot where dinosaur tracks were still evident in the rocks some millions of years after they'd passed.
Fort Pierce, and like the dinosaur tracks, it's been unmolested for over a century despite being unguarded and open to everyone.
The Utah high desert is a harsh but beautiful place. Here's a video pan I shot, showing the terrain in detail. Those of you who live or have visited places like this might find it boring, but as a first-time visitor, I was fascinated.
I could see myself moving out somewhere like this in a few years. And when the wheels fall off what's left of our society in the not-too-distant future, it'll be a great safe haven to watch and mourn from.
