I should have included this link: http://www.nps.gov/stea/index.htm
If you find Steamtown interesting, the same site will take you to other national parks like Yosemite, Yellowstone, Zion and my personal favorite, Bryce Canyon. Southern Utah is definitely under rated as a vacation destination as it takes a certain appreciation of desert landscapes to get the Zen of the place. It's like being in a Clint Eastwood western but with the realization that sometimes an empty chair is just an empty chair.Note to G3RZP:
Two of my more memorable moments involved watching busloads of Japanese tourists. Once at the top of the I-80 summit pass between Cheyenne and Laramie, Wyoming...http://www.wyoroad.info/highway/webcameras/I80Summit/I80Summit.html
...and the other at the Grand Canyon.
Absolutely boggles their minds to see that much scenery in every direction with nary a hint of human presence.
