San Rafael Swell, UT 7-23-13zzg

(1 in a multiple picture set)

At this point, some miles west of Green River, UT (in the middle of a 120-mile stretch of interstate highway with no services), the badlands are giving way to an area called the San Rafael Swell. It is as the name implies. The land, when it was being formed, pushed up (or swelled) leaving sharp, slanted formations.
