Yesterday was remarkable. I left Moab early and drove about an hour to Thompson Springs to revisit a town I'd photographed in 2010. Little had changed. The series is here.
From there I drove east on 70 to Green River which I will write about later then on to Hanksville, and then west to Factory Butte, where I spent the rest of the day.
Something from another planet. Factory Butte is close to a wasteland of epic proportions. In fact, it is an"Authorized Play Area" allowing all sorts motorized vehicles to do whatever they like to it.
I had photographed here before. It is safe to say that this one place was the key motivator for me to come on this Utah trip in the first place.
Factory Butte itself is difficult to describe. Thanks to the miracle of photography I can let the pictures show you.
I will stop here as it is getting lighter out and I want to be back at Factory Butte for early morning light.
