Our Daily Sykes #436 – Temporarily Lost Butte

Since I am certain that I have seen this butte before during one of my Google Earth drives – probably through southeast Utah –  I have titled it the Temporarily Lost Butte, confident that I will find it again.   And yet I have just tried again and failed.  I looked mostly to the south of Moab, Utah.  That is where I imagined that I saw it earlier.  But now I have come upon so many buttes that resemble this one that my hide-and-seek is like confused by the sprite or hobgoblin or leprechan who has tied ribbons around every tree in the forest.  Still I will stay with “temporarily” and expect to come upon it again and learn its confident name.

  1. It’s Factory Butte, near Capitol Reef National Park. And it has me rethinking my suggestion of Book Cliffs for one of the other slides — the colors and rock layers look very similar to this, so that photo may have been taken somewhere around here as well.
