Rozel Point and The Spiral Jettty




Rozel Point Utah

Tar like, thick sticky oil,
coming right up through
the white salt flats

30-50 wells were drilled here at one
time producing 10,000 barrels of oil,
but has been inactive since the 1980's

Careful where you step!

Quarter mile away from
the tar is the Spiral Jetty



Capt. Morgan Jim


Made by earth artist Robert Smithson in 1970



It was perfect weather for this adventure,
Thanks Kristi and Craig for coming with.

Took 2 days for the tar to wear off my fingers :) We had a great time, too. Thanks for letting us tag along.

Looks like another wonderful day out. FYI - after future encounters with tar - WD-40 works wonders as a tar solvent! :)
