I don’t know how I missed this the first time, but I was a woman with a mission hiking up to Delicate Arch in Arches National Park, Utah. Coming down from the arch, though, I was much, much slower , and I happened to look over and see this hilarious setup: someone had taken the nearby rocks and created a recliner chair, complete with foot stool, a “glass” on one chair arm and a “tv remote” on the other chair arm. I decided I needed to try it out. I believe I like the modern recliner much better than the Stone Age recliner

That’s hilarious!! I can hear Fred now – “Willllllmmmmmmaaaaa, I’m hungry!!'” LOL Great post!
Oh, that is brilliant! Personally, I’d like a soft pillow under my bum, but this looks pretty cosy! What is the view like from there, Rebecca? What did you see when you were sitting on the recliner?
Let’s see, I’m trying to remember. I mainly saw in front of me the valley walls off in the distance, plus some mounds of what looked like tailings along the trail. There is a blue-green mineral there and I can’t figure out yet what it is. I’ve got to look it up. I tried asking one of my old geology professors who frequents the area on an annual basis, but he’s color blind and couldn’t tell me what the mineral/rock was since he’s never seen anything blue-green out there (even though it’s plain as day to see it). Sigh. I took a number of photos during my hike up to Delicate Arch that I need to edit. I took the photos to use for a future blog post about my hike to that amazing formation, so stay tuned.
That sounds like an interesting sight! I hope you (your prof) can manage to identify the mineral sometime. I look forward to your follow-up post.
