UTAH CONTRASTS

Cold starry nights: Saturn and Andromeda Galaxy visible through telescope.
Sun-drenched days requiring sunscreen and hats--scurrying toward shade.

Spectacular sandstone spires and mesas, some with windows;
Deep river-carved canyons, stranding terraced islands.

Highways smudged and besmirched with deer blood and carnage;
Roads bordered by iconic Buddha-like and temple-shaped rock formations.

Southern Utah's calendar-photo beauty carved out of temporary pourous stone;
Northern Utah's granite peaks bespeckled with swaying golden aspens.

Exquisite Heaven on Earth, clear evidence of higher hands at work; 
Hell's fire and brimstone echoed at every curve and all angles.

Four friends collectively reveling in non-daily-life experiences;
Inward spiritual revelations and soul-expanding images.
