“This is the most beautiful place on earth.
“There are many such places. Every man, every woman carries in heart and mind the image of the ideal place, the right place, the one true home, actual or visionary. A houseboat in Kashmir, a view down Atlantic Avenue in Brooklyn, a gray gothic farmhouse two stories high at the end of a red dog road in the Allegheny Mountains, a cabin on the shore of a blue lake in spruce and fir country, a greasy alley near the Hoboken waterfront, or even possibly, for those of a less demanding sensibility, the world to be seen from a comfortable apartment in the tender, velvety smog of Manhattan, Chicago, Paris, Tokyo, Rio or Rome — there’s no limit to the human capacity for the homing sentiment. Theologians, sky pilots, astronauts have even felt the appeal of home calling to them from above, in the cold black outback of interstellar space.
“For myself, I’ll take Moab, Utah. I don’t mean the town itself, of course, but the country which surrounds it — the Canyonlands. The slick-rock desert. The red dust and the burnt cliffs and the lonely sky — all that which lies beyond the end of the roads.”
The above was written by Edward Abbey, and it is from his book about our red rock country, Desert Solitaire. His use of words is incomparable. The perfect description of how we feel about this, the part of the land we carry in our hearts. The part that grabs travelers as they pass through.
Come to Twin Rocks in Bluff, UT and discover the art that emerges from this magical place. You will be captivated and amazed. But you won’t be surprised. Art that comes from land with this sort of beauty is breathtaking, purely imagined, and the inspiration is clear.
