Cathedral valley

Temple of the Sun and Moon as Dawn

Glass  mountain

We did get to the temples in Cathedral valley at dawn About the same time the rain we were driving into hit. Remembering all the washes we crossed we left the same way we came just staying on the edge of the rain. Normally in Arizona and even Colorado you can drive 4WD roads in the rain as long as they are not washed out but in this area of Utah there is a lot of clay and even a little rain can make it very slippery. Impossibly slippery.

Glass Mountain, really just a small mound, consists of selenite crystals making an interesting geological feature.
