The Swell Swell

Interstate 70 bisects the San Rafael Swell, a spectacular geologic feature in central Utah. We’ve been to Capitol Reef and parts of Escalante National Monument, but this is the first time that we’ve driven I-70 through the Swell.

Fascinating and beautiful.

There are rest areas and viewpoints along the Interstate so you can absorb the scenery. These photos are taken with a cell phone from a couple of the viewpoints along I-70.

It reminds me of Capitol Reef and the Waterpocket Fold, just to the south.

I think we need another trip to this area, just to explore the Swell. Maybe when there is less smoke and haze.
