I've heard

of Wind Cave! Thanks for checking
out my pics - do you have photos
of any volcanoes? Thanks, Melinda!

Melinda ?

You have enough information there
to publish a book. Who knows, it
might outsell Kelsey's books! I
am familiar with Parvant Butte; it's
that big cinder cone that can be seen
from I-15. The black one, with the lava
fields beneath it. I think there's a
really awesome "wildlife refuge" over
there, also. Just to the south of Delta.
Assuming a great place for geese and ducks.
Okay, I've taken too much time. Take care!
(Dean wants to climb the Granite Peak on
the Dugway military reservation. Think he
needs a permit or special authorization?)

Re: Melinda ?

Sorry about the long response :) There are two Granite Peaks in Utah. The one in the Mineral Range is located east of the city of Milford. The other one is located near Dugway Proving Ground. That area is in the desert and surrounded by mountains on three sides. You need permission and necessary security clearance to go into the Dugway Proving Ground.

In the 1940’s, they established facilities to test various chemical and biological materials and weapons. That area included Granite Peak and the large valley to the north. It became inactive after World War II. The base was reactivated later during the Korean and Vietnam Wars and then became a permanent Department of Army installation. It’s probably a good idea to stay away from the mountains that are above the proving ground.

You're very right!

I'd hate to sit down with a (P and J)
sandwich, and suddenly see this
"cruise missle" bearing down on
my location atop Granite Peak.
Thank you, Melinda! : - )
