A collection of distilled sarcastic wisdom, numerous photographs, discussions of books and stuff to learn and more stuff to think about from a retired economics professor turned blogger and photographer.
The Jordan River runs through the trees and greenery in the foreground. In the distance is what is called, for some reason, the "point of the Mountain" which would more aptly be called the "point of the sand dune." I-15 goes up this side, around the west end of the sand dune, and down a slope into Utah County on the other side. For some reason, the Point of the Mountain segment of I-15 manages to pick up the worst weather in snowstorms in the winter. The top of the sand dune is a prime place for paragliding and hang gliding. The west end of the sand dune is being quickly whittled away for road and all other kinds of construction. The sand dune continues on under the highway and down a slope near Camp Williams.
