Rim of Boulder Mountain looking south from Trail Point   c. 1994 by Ray Wheeler

"The Aquarius Plateau should be described in blank verse and illustrated upon canvas.  The explorer who sits upon the brink of its parapet looking off into the southern and eastern haze, who skirts its lava cap or clambers up and down its vast ravines, who builds his campfire by the borders of its snow-fed lakes or stretches himself beneath its giant pines and spruces, forgets that he is a geologist and feels himself a poet.

--Clarence E. Dutton, Report on the Geology of the High Plateaus of Utah, 1880
