Location #2: “Hole in the Rock,” Moab Utah
Are you near Moab, Utah? Moab is an old Mormon pioneer town of the Colorado River, the starting point for trips north into the Arches National Monument area and south along the river into Canyonlands National Park. It’s also the setting of many of Zane Gray’s novels and was headquarters for a number of outlaw gangs of the early West. In 1972, Moab signs attracted industry to set up shop and tourists to snap their way through a house made entirely of sandstone.
