Backpacker Carl Sullivan from Colorado Springs, Co

Sold its soul
For oil and coal


Red rocks, sacred sites,
pretty good views,
weather worn wonders,
what have you got to lose?

Honest bandits
Butch and Sundance,
hard riding ranch hands,
Zane Grey romance.

Sand canyon walls
echo the past
hole in the wall gang
and their horses, fast.

Hole in the ground gang
has a smart cranium,
took over this turf
might find uranium.


Utah residents with a strong
case of Kentucky envy
might want to listen to
John Prine’s song “PARADISE
