Southern end of the San Rafael Swell, Utah

To reiterate from a previous post on the Boulder Mountain Image from Utah:
I discovered some information about some areas in Utah. Information which I found very disconcerting. There is a move afoot to go into areas of the San Rafael Swell and parts of the Escalante Grant Staircase for mining, to include(Uranium) and Oil drilling. These are located in areas my wife and I frequent. They're located in rather remote places which require high clearence four wheel vehicles. Not easily seen, hidden from most of the public. It would be a real tradegy to see the devastation which would result if this were to happen. Given the climate in this county these days, I fear it's inevitable. This is an image from the Southern end of the San Rafael Swell were the proposed drilling and mining is to happen. If it does happen, this area will no longer resemble what you see here.
