The day after my strenuous hike to Moonshine Arch I drove to Jones Hole, a deep canyon about forty miles from camp. It's a very scenic drive, as the road varies in elevation by several thousand feet from the low point to the highest. Entering Jones Hole, the road drops precipitously with grades of more than 10%.
The canyon is in the middle of oil field operations, but no wells have been drilled close enough to disturb the beauty of the place. I suppose BLM has avoided granting permits for that area. People often associate the formations with familiar objects, giving them names like the Camel, the Flying Witch, etc. I'm not sure I see the point, since everyone interprets them differently and they will soon change as more erosion occurs. The most famous formation, called the Teapot, collapsed a few years ago. We don't know if the inevitable erosion did the deed, or if human hands were involved.
