95. Utah = Morman

Let me just say that you have to appreciate the pioneer work ethic. These people were seriously dedicated to getting to wherever it was they were going for whatever reason they were going there, setting up their homesteads not just in the middle of nowhere, but in the middle of these mountains, surrounded by all this rock without any sort of trail or road. Bryce Canyon? Named after a Morman couple who settled in between the hoodoos. When asked about it, Mr. Bryce's comment had something to do with what a bitch it was to lose a cow in the hoodoos.

And remember that dirt Hole in the Rock Road back in Escalante? It was called that because as the Morman settlers were working their way to wherever, they actually came to a hole in the rock and instead of stopping there, or turning around, they lowered their wagons through the hole and kept on going. THAT is dedication. Or something.

But what I really wanted to say is that this state has apparently never heard of the separation of church and state. LDS is everywhere. All over the paper. All over the news. And it's not even remotely subtle. Blatent the LDS church this. The LDS church that. LDS officials state blah, blah, blah. I had to turn the news off tonight. I can't take it. We have to get out of this state soon. Unless, of course, we should happen to see more Sister Wives. Should that happen, we will take chase and photographs!
