January at Gallery Moab
Happy New Year from
Gallery Moab! Our heartfelt
thanks
to
our
art-loving
community for its encouragement
and support over the past two
years. We could not have kept our
doors open and lights on without
you!
Our cooperative of Moab area
artists was formed in 2013 with
the mission “To enrich, empower
and support local artists and build
community through the arts.” By
sharing the work, expenses and
rewards of running the gallery, we
have accomplished so much more
than any one of us could do alone!
Gallery Moab has grown into a
lively, colorful gathering place
where local artists and artisans
can showcase their creations and
host Art Walk receptions. With
our visible, central location on
Main Street, we also have served
as “Information Central” for arts events such as the Studio
Tour and Plein Air Moab.
Gallery Moab features original oil, pastel, watercolor,
and alcohol ink paintings and photography, ranging in style
from realism to impressionism and abstract expressionism.
A variety of three-dimensional works includes wood
carvings, ceramics, concrete castings, mosaics, glass, and
metal work. Prints, cards, fabric art and jewelry make
by Thea Nordling
great mementos or gifts. We
offer something for every taste
and budget. Come in to enjoy the
colorful ambience and see the
latest works by our artists.
Do you dream of creating
your own art? Take a class! What
better way to spend the cold,
dark months of winter than by
stimulating your own creativity,
having fun, and making new
friends! Call us, drop by, or check
our web page to see what classes
and workshops are offered over
the winter.
If you are already an
accomplished artist or artisan,
we would love to see your
work. We are eager to have new
people join us as Member Artists,
Guest Artists, or Consignment
Artists. Each involves a different
level of commitment, fee, and
commission on sales. If you
are interested in being part of our creative community
and exhibiting your art to the public, call to set up an
appointment to meet with our board, show your work and
discuss details.
We look forward to seeing you at the gallery!

CONCERT HAPPENINGS
Famed Songstress Martha Scanlan comes to MARC Jan. 15th
Martha Scanlan is one of America’s songwriting
treasures, blessed with a voice unlike anyone else. On
Friday Jan.15th at the Moab Arts and Recreation Center
(MARC) 111 E. 100 North, she will be appearing with
guitarist Jon Neufeld on a double-bill with old friend and
Moab resident Sand Sheff. Showtime is at 7pm.
Montana- based Scanlan is touring in support of her
long-awaited third release, The Shape Of Things Gone
Missing, The Shape Of Things To Come. Her songwriting
is a mix of a western and old-time sound, with lyrics of
extraordinary beauty. Her original songs like “Little Bird
of Heaven”, “Seeds of the Pine” and “Hallelujah” are
regularly covered by other performers.
Scanlan’s first solo album, The West Was Burning,
featuring production by gifted multi-instrumentalist Dirk
Powell and spirited performances by the late Levon Helm
(of The Band) and Amy Helm, was met with critical acclaim.
One music magazine called it “A revelation, an instant classic
and one of those rare albums that defies genre and generation.
Scanlan evokes western landscapes as effectively as Georgia
O’Keefe did on canvass.” (Dirty Linen)
Martha Scanlan was a founding member of the
legendary old-time revival band Reeltime Travelers, who
entertained audiences on some of the biggest stages in
the country in the early 2000’s. She also gained national
recognition for her songwriting at the prestigious Chris
Austin songwriting contest at Merlefest in 2004, where
she won awards in two categories. With the Reeltime
Travelers, she was featured on the soundtrack for the film
”Cold Mountain”, produced by Grammy Award winner
Bone Burnett. She has collaborated and shared the stage
with a variety of roots musicians including Alison Krauss,
Ralph Stanley and many others.
Her song “Little Bird Of Heaven”, was the centerpiece
of celebrated American novelist Joyce Carol Oates book by
the same name.
The Shape Of Things Gone
Missing, The Shape Of Things To
Come is the result of five years spent
immersed in working and living on a
small family cattle ranch in a remote
corner of Southeastern Montana.
“I thought I was stepping back
from music and writing,” says
Scanlan, “but when these songs
came together I realized that I have
been writing them all along. There’s
a beautiful congruence in music and working with cattle
and horses. It’s all about the flow, finding the current in
things. I was curious about how that would translate in the
studio, how the landscape would come through.”
Producer and long-time musical collaborator Jon
Neufeld brought fellow members of Black Prairie and the
Decemberists, Delorean and Amy Helm together into the
studio for the record.
“We wanted it to be a live, improvisational and
collaborative process, to really let the current of the songs
be the guide.”
This will be Martha Scanlan’s first Moab appearance in
more than five years. The MARC, Friday Jan. 15th at 7pm.

DEAD HORSE POINT HAPPENINGS
First Day Hikes: An Alternative Start to the New Year
By James Wells
Looking for an idea to start off the New Year on a
positive and healthy note? Perhaps you’d like to join
the tens of thousands of people nationwide setting out
for adventure on what have become known as “First
Day Hikes.” The tradition began during the early ‘90s at
Massachusetts’ Blue Hills State Reservation, and has been
spreading across the country as a state parks initiative ever
since. 2016 will mark the fifth year in which all fifty states
offer at least one free, guided event.
Delta State Recreation Site (Alaska)
Themes of first day hikes vary from park to park.
Whether traversing a swamp, climbing a mountain, or
touring an historic battlefield, the ultimate goal is the same.
According to the American Hiking Society, this is to get
hearts pumping in the beauty of America’s state parks!
Dead Horse Point State Park (Utah)
Cape Lookout State Park (Oregon)
January 1, 2015 bore witness to nearly 28,000 participants
collectively hiking more than 66,000 miles. Trends predict
that 2016 numbers may be even higher. No matter where
your travels may take you this holiday season, you’re likely
to find an event to take part in.
If you plan on ringing in the new year locally, come
on up to Dead Horse Point State Park! Participants for our
First Day Hike will meet at the visitor center at 12:45pm
on January 1, 2016, and proceed 2.5 miles (round trip) to
Bighorn Overlook. The hike will be both family friendly
and informal, allowing everyone to take in the silent beauty
of the winter terrain while asking park staff any questions
that may come to mind. Please note the distance and
moderate terrain, however, in order to judge if this trek is
for you. Adverse, unforeseen conditions like ice and snow
may make the hike more difficult, but also potentially more
beautiful! This event will take place no matter the weather.
For more information about the First Day Hike at
Dead Horse Point State Park, please call 435-259-2614.
Dead Horse Point is located 32 miles from Moab on State
Route 313. Park Website: deadhorsepoint.utah.gov
If you’d like to learn more about first day hikes in
general, or to find an event elsewhere, visit http://www.
naspd.org/initiatives-special-programs/first-day-hikes/. We
hope to post a summary of 2016’s nationwide participation
stats in the next issue of Dead Horse Point Happenings.
Big Horn Gallery Photo Exhibit
G
The Bighorn Gallery at Dead Horse Point State Park
has extended the exhibit of images by Utah photographer
Chad Dutson. The exhibit,
‘Moments in Nature’
features both popular
and unique perspectives
of diverse landscapes
discovered
throughout
the United States and
Caribbean: desert, forest,
and coastal scenes. The
artwork will be on display
through February 29th,
2016 and includes more than twenty-five images.

Dutson is a Utah-based wilderness photographer
whose admiration for nature grows with each photographic
adventure. He has spent all but three years of his
life living in the West, providing him incredible
opportunities to enhance his self-taught craft.
He has an insatiable desire to wander the
wild, seeking solitude and serenity away
from the bustle of city life. His deep passion
for photography pushes him to extremes to
capture the right shot. After each excursion he
shares his experience with others, hoping they
may fall in love with nature as he has. Dutson
philosophizes that “quality photographic
moments require three elements: the right experience,
the right tools, and the right moment,” but the artist also
admits that “the right moment is often nothing more than
good luck.” According to Dutson, “Some say they lose
themselves in one thing or another; however I find myself
through photography, losing only the sense of time.”
Dutson has been published in USA Today, Popular
Photography, and recently was featured with an Editor’s
Choice award by the prominent photographic website,
500px.com. During the exhibit, each image is available for
purchase as well as smaller matted prints. To learn more
about the artist visit www.chaddutson.com.
Dead Horse Point State Park is located nine miles
north of Moab on US 191, and 23 miles south on SR 313.
The visitor center is open daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Park
admission is $10. For more information, contact the park
at 435-259-2614.

BALLOON FESTIVAL HAPPENINGS
Hot Air Balloons: for a Healthy New Year
While listening to recent radio and TV news
reports, we’ve heard a lot about what’s not good
for us: the things we eat, how much we consume,
how much we sit around and how often we stress
about the little things in life. Those broadcasts
all have the same recommendations to make us
healthier: eat better, rest more, don’t sweat the
small stuff, and most importantly, get out and
play!
The Business Owners of Bluff, while hardly
medical experts, propose the perfect remedy
for your stressful life: The 18th Annual Bluff
International Balloon Festival, which takes
place January 15 -17, 2016 - Martin Luther
King weekend – in beautiful Bluff, Utah.
As always, the weekend will feature fabulous
color and excitement as pilots and sponsors
ascend in baskets carried aloft by hot massive air
balloons. Friday and Saturday they’ll fly across
Bluff, going whichever way the wind takes them.
by the Glow-in. Tethered balloons will flash
their fiery glow as the sun sets.
There’s no need to consult your physician
in order to attend the 18th Annual Bluff
International Balloon Festival. As experienced
members of the organization hosting this event,
we can attest to the fact that you will not just sit
around as you wander through the balloon setup sites. Instead, you will get lots of exercise
as you follow balloons across town, stopping to
take photos wherever you go. Your stress will
disappears as you are calmed by the beauty of the
floating hot-air canopies and the camaraderie of
joining friends for an entertaining weekend.
So listen to the advice you hear on the news.
Start your healthy New Year by joining us for the
Bluff Balloon Festival January 15-17, 2016 in the
heart of Southern Utah’s red rock desert.
Then Sunday morning many of the crews will caravan west
on Hwy 191 to sail over Valley of the Gods, while a few
may stay close to town.
There will be fun activities to add to your stress-free
weekend, including the Navajo Taco Supper, Friday
night which is hosted by the Bluff Elementary School to
benefit its students. The evening features performances by
the kids showcasing their Native song and dance routines.
Then on Saturday be sure to come back to the Community
Center after the early morning launch to savor a warm
bowl of chili and indulge with an ice cream treat at our
Chili & Ice Cream Social as you prepare to be amazed

PHOTOGRAPHY HAPPENINGS
Photographing the Red Rocks Country
By David L. Brown
Let It Snow! – Here’s How You Can Make Great Winter Photos
You may think that when winter comes, it’s time put
away your camera and wait for spring. If you do you’ll
miss out on some of the most dramatic photo opportunities
of the year.
Winter is a special time in Utah. The cottonwoods’
leaves are gone and their trunks stand out in stark contrast
against the snowy landscape or wintry sky. The red rocks
almost seem to glow when the afternoon sun illuminates
them, their shadows filled by light reflected from the snow.
Fig. 2
Fig. 1
If you venture out soon after a snowfall, branches and cliffs
may be festooned with the white stuff, creating special
photography opportunities.
Winter days are short here in Moab, with the sun never
very high in the sky. Sometimes after a snow storm the sky
is at its clearest, with deep blues that are seen in few other
places in America.
Here are a few tips for capturing winter landscapes
with your camera.
Keep your camera cold. When it’s cold outside and
there’s moisture in the air it loves to condense on warm
surfaces. If your camera is too warm it will soon be
covered with dew. Leave your camera where it can cool
down before you’re ready to make pictures, for example by
putting it in your car the night before.
Keep your batteries warm. Here’s an exception to the
rule above. Especially when it’s bitter cold, your batteries
won’t perform with their usual oomph. The solution:
When you’re not actually shooting, remove the battery
or batteries and keep them in an inside pocket. With the
camera cold and your batteries warm you’re ready to make
pictures even on the coldest winter day.
Expose to the right. It’s not easy to fool the latest
auto-exposure systems, but light metering has always been
based on a gray scale. That means that your camera might
be fooled and you’ll end up with snow that looks more like
wood ashes. There are a couple of ways to keep this from
being a problem. First, if your camera allows it, shoot in
RAW instead of letting the camera create JPEG files for
you. With RAW, you can adjust exposure and other settings
in your computer before processing the digital file.
Second, and this is always a good idea when shooting
in RAW, slightly over expose the image, perhaps one-third
stop. This lets you capture more pixels in the high (white)
end of the scale and fewer in the low-end shadows. In
RAW you can always adjust the exposure later.
Finally, use the histogram function in your camera
to make sure the exposure is within the right range. You
should look for indications that pixels are either too far in

the shadow or highlight ends of the exposure scale.
Watch your step. When scoping out a scene with new
fallen snow, make sure you don’t leave a bunch of tracks
just where you want to make a picture. The photograph in
Fig. 1 is a good example of this. I made it in early January
some years ago using a 4x5 inch view camera and Fuji
Velvia sheet film. I arrived in Moab the night before and
checked into a motel. During the night there was a nice
snowfall and by morning the storm had passed and the sky
Backyard
Theater
turned pure azure. When I hiked up to Delicate Arch no one
else had been there to disturb the fresh snow. Notice how
the snow acted as a reflector to fill in the shadows on the
arch and bring out the glowing color of the rocks.
Here’s another idea when working with your digital
files: Winter scenes often adapt themselves well to blackand-white conversion. To demonstrate this, in Fig. 2 I’ve
processed the Delicate Arch picture in Photoshop using the
NIK plug-in suite of processing tools (a Google product). I
chose a filter called Silver Efex Pro 2, and selected the look
of Kodak Panatomic X film, a 32 ISO film known for its
fine grain. (This film was popular for many years but is no
longer made.) Compare how the black-and-white version
creates a different creative look to the luminous colors of
the original.
Here’s another example of a winter scene (Fig. 3). This
photo was made in Great Basin National Park just across
the Nevada line, also with a 4x5 view camera and film. The
snow makes the foreground bushes stand out in ways they
wouldn’t at other times of the year. The bare white branches
of the aspen trees stand out against evergreens and the peak
of Mount Wheeler finishes out the composition.
And here’s a shot (Fig. 4) I made two years ago in
Arches National Park, with snow bringing a magical look
to hoodoo rock formations in the Garden of Eden area.
The snow makes the red rocks stand out. A polarizing filter
helped bring out the colors of the rocks and sky. This was
made with a Canon t3i camera and Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8
lens.
Here’s hoping 2016 will be a great year for you. Keep
on clicking.

RESTAURANT GUIDE
How To Get A Drink...
...In Moab, Utah
Recent changes to Utah Liquor Laws have made it
less confusing and easier to get an alcoholic drink. You
can now go to some restaurants and without ordering
food, you can order a drink.
Some restrictions may still apply as to where you
can sit in a particular establishment when consuming
alcohol. For example, Zax has an adult atmosphere
in the Watering Hole where you can order a cocktail
and watch your favorite sporting event on their 13 tvs,
with or without ordering food. This locally owned
full-service restaurant serves their entire menu in both
the Watering Hole and restaurant. However, if you sit
in the family dining restaurant, you need to order food

New Recipes for the New Year
Growing up in a small town and coming from a family of
eight meant that we didn’t eat out or order in much. We
learned to cook and anything that we ate was made at
home. Heck, until I was ten I thought the only way people
ate pizza was by making it themselves and my first delivery
pizza wasn’t even until college! Some may say it was a
deprived life, however, thanks to my seclusion and training
no delivery pizza or store bought dip has ever measured up
to my families recipes! Therefore, this 2016 year of parties,
super bowls, sport madness, I am now bequeathing you the
beloved recipes of the Merrell Household.
Now opeN year rouNd!

First and foremost I want to share the pizza dough recipe I
first learned when I was 11. And as the theme of this article
is geared towards party foods we are going to be tweaking
it a little to tell you how to make Pizza Rolls that are to
die for!
RiveRfRont Patio Dining
16 Miles east of Moab on Hwy 128
435-259-2002 • 866-812-2002
Pizza Dough
2c. Scalded Milk
1tbsp. yeast
1 tsp. Salt
½ cube butter
2 tbsp. Sugar
4-4 ½ c. Flour
First, start by scalding 2 cups of milk on the stove; to scald
milk slowly heat the milk until it barely begins to boil
around the edges. As the milk begins to cool add the butter, sugar, and salt, once the milk is just barely warm add
the yeast. Do not add the yeast while it is hot or else it will
kill the yeast and the dough will not rise at all. Add the
flour and once it is well mixed set it in a lightly greased
bowl and cover it with a dish towel until it rises to double
its original size.
Now as the theme of this article is geared towards party
foods we are going to give you this great party food recipe
for Pizza Rolls. Begin by spreading the dough out on a
lightly greased or floured countertop so it doesn’t stick.
When it’s completely rolled out spread the dough with garlic butter, parmesan cheese, mozzarella cheese, and other
desired toppings for our family we do cheese, pepperoni,
olives and mushrooms. Roll it up and cut it about inch
thick and place it on a cookie sheet about 2 inches apart.
Sprinkle with a bit more mozzarella cheese on top and bake
them at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until golden brown.
Now weather it’s pizza or pizza rolls this recipe for marinara sauce is amazing!

Now in my family there is not one gathering that we have
had in 10 plus years that did not have this Carmel Chex
Mix treat, in fact it is always devoured so quickly that it is
made two or three times before the gathering is over. Even
as I write this recipe I am craving it so badly that I now
have plans to go to the store to get the ingredients for it so
I can make it Christmas Eve!

remove it from heat. Put the cereal and coconut in a large
separate bowl then add the caramel mixing it all together.
Spread the mixture out on wax paper to cool. Once it’s
cooled put it in a bowl and let the happiness begin! The

TRAIL HAPPENINGS
Many Ways to Enjoy the Winter La Sal Mountains
The snow capped peaks of the La Sal Mountains are
most often viewed as a scenic backdrop for the stunnning
red rock landscape that surrounds them. But with an
average snowfall of 250 inches a year, the mountain ranges
hosts a variety of winter recreation opportunities including
backcountry skiing and snowboarding, snowmobiling,
snowshoeing, and cross country skiing on groomed
trails.
Winter access to the mountains
is provided from two routes kept
open by the Grand and San Juan
County Road Departments. The La
Sal Mountain Loop Road provides
access to a parking area at the
Geyser Pass Winter Trailhead at
9,600 ft. Just below the parking
area is a hill popular for sledding. If
you are sledding on this hill, please
park in the parking lot, not at the
base of the hill so other vehicles
can get through. The popular
Geyser Pass trailhead provides
access for backcountry skiing and snowboarding in Gold
Basin, as well as access to 12 kilometers of groomed
trail courtesy of a partnership between the Manti-La Sa
National Forest, and volunteers from the Lower Utah
Nordic Alliance (LUNA). Because these routes are open to
everyone, please be respectful of different users. If you are
snowmobiling on these groomed routes, please go uphill
on the right and downhill on the left to avoid conflict with
cross country skiers.
About a mile and a half up from the Geyser Pass
trailhead, a right fork takes you into Gold Basin. This dead
end road is groomed, and used extensively by cross country
skiers. Motorized use is not permitted off the road into
Gold Basin, and the Forest Service would like to encourage
motorized users to avoid
use of the Gold Basin
road and continue up
to Geyser Pass, where
abundant
meadows
and
hills
provide
excellent snowmobiling
opportunities.
The second plowed
access is around on the
east side of the range,
and provides access to
some of the mountain’s
best
snowmobiling
terrrain. To access this trailhead, take Highway 191 south
of Moab for 22 miles to the junction with Highway 46.
Turn here towards the town of La Sal. 3.5 miles past La
Sal, turn left on the Upper Two Mile Road and continue
two more miles to the marked trailhead for La Sal Pass.
From here, riders can snowmobile up the road to the pass,
Nordic Skiing In The La Sal Mountains
Whether you prefer skinny or fat skis, telemark or
randonee, classic or skating, snowboards or snowshoes,
sledding or snowmobiling, there’s something for you in
Moab’s upper extremes. Locals and visitors alike are lucky
to have groomed trails in the La Sal Mountains which offer
access for all kinds of winter recreationists.
LUNA (Lower Utah Nordic Alliance) is a group of
dedicated volunteers who work with the Manti-La Sal
Forest Service to provide a groomed Nordic track system
starting from the Geyser Pass Trailhead. Beginning in early
to mid-December or whenever the snowpack is established,
LUNA volunteers use a system of 2 snowmobiles pulling
grooming equipment to lay a Nordic track wide enough
for skate skiing and with a set of parallel tracks on the side
for classic skiers. LUNA is able to provide this service
through support from both Grand County’s Trail Mix
Committee and the Recreation Special Service District as
well as from private donations.
The starting point is the Geyser Pass Road winter
trailhead at 9600 ft. and the groomed track goes up from
there, where the elevations are higher yet and the air is
thin. There are sections of the track that are suitable for
all levels of skiers and snowshoe enthusiasts. As you set
out from the parking area it is important to know that most
of the track is “shared use” and you will see a variety of
winter recreationists enjoying the mountains including
snowmobilers,
backcountry
skiers and snowboarders,
snowshoe and sledding parties
with many canine companions.
We ask everyone to please
be courteous to other users,
move right to allow others to
safely pass and keep yourself
under control when traveling
downhill.
The Meadow Loop is the
easiest and closest track to the
parking lot. Ski a short way
uphill from the trailhead and
you’ll see the Meadow Loop
take off on the left and wind first through some aspens
and then into a beautiful open meadow with Haystack
Mountain in the background. The terrain is rolling and
the loop rejoins the main track close to where you entered.
This .3 mile sunny loop is fun to ski in either direction
and is the perfect place to work on your form and get your
lungs used to the high elevation.
Gold Basin is an intermediate track and is reached
by continuing up the main Geyser Pass Road track from
the Meadow Loop to the intersection with the Gold Basin
Road, which branches right. The Gold Basin Track is
rolling, both out and returning, and offers a peaceful ski
through pines and aspens with occasional views of the
red rock desert below. You may see backcountry skiers
accessing many of the popular runs above the track or
returning from turns in the powder. The Gold Basin Track
ends at the point where motorized travel is prohibited from
going further, thus making this an out and back excursion
totaling 8 km (5 miles) round trip from the trailhead.
For the ambitious and fit skier, Geyser Pass and
the La Sal Loppet Loop, which branches off at the top
of the pass, offers
a challenging and
beautiful Nordic
skiing experience.
From the Gold
Basin intersection,
Geyser Pass is
another 2 miles
(3.5 km) mostly
uphill.
Geyser
Pass tops out at
10,600 ft and the La Sal Loppet Loop takes off to the right
along the road towards Dark Canyon. After approximately
.5 miles, the track leaves the main route on the left and
winds through open meadows to a point offering wide
ranging views of Colorado including the stunning San
Miguel and Wilson mountains near Telluride. This rolling
loop continues through the trees and emerges on the east
side of the Geyser Pass Road where you will take a left
up a short hill back to the pass, adding an additional 1.8
miles (3 km) to your distance
(8.6 miles/13.2 km total from
trailhead). From the pass is
it mostly downhill back to the
trailhead so be sure to have a
warmer wind protective layer
for the descent.
Directions to trailhead:
From Moab head south on Hwy
191 to the La Sal Mountain
Loop Rd turn off at the south
end of Spanish Valley. Turn
left off the Hwy and then right
onto the Loop Rd for about 13
miles to a well marked turn onto
Geyser Pass Rd. From here travel 3.5 miles to the trailhead.
Note that snow tires and/or 4wd are recommended
for this road. The road is plowed fairly regularly but
check http://utahavalanchecenter.org/advisory/moab for
current conditions and the latest information about
road clearing. Be prepared for winter conditions in the
mountains and bring appropriate warm clothing, water,
and food for any outing into the backcountry. There are no
services other than toilet facilities at the trailhead.

Non Motorized Tails Advisory Committee when she’s not

by Eric Trenbeath
where open meadows, rolling terrain, and hill climbing
opportunities for all skill levels abound. You can also
continue on the Upper Two Mile Road for about five more
miles to the Dark Canyon Trailhead.
Non-Motorized Closure
The vast majority of the La Sal Mountains is open
to winter, motorized recreation, but the alpine area
surrounding the middle group of the mountain range
including Gold Basin is closed to motorized use. This area
is defined as the terrain east, and at the end of the Gold
Basin Road; and the terrain south of the Geyser Pass road
above the Gold Basin turnoff. All of the area around Geyser
Pass is open to motorized use and provides excellent
snowmobiling terrain.
Avalanche Hazard in the La Sal Mountains
The La Sal Mountains are exceedingly avalanche
prone due to a combination of steep terrain, and a
shallow snowpack that is prone to the formation of

HIKING HAPPENINGS
Island In The Sky – Discovering “A Whale Of A Rock”
In the middle of a dry land, far from the sea, a formation
known as Whale Rock seems out place. Standing at its
base, I’m trying hard to stretch my imagination far enough
to transform this long slab of sandstone in to the image of a
whale. Scratching my head I’m wondering, where did this
name come from anyway?
Its history likely goes back to long before this was
a national park,
before paved roads
conveniently brought
people in for a day’s
outing. Back to a
time when anyone
venturing this far
from
civilization
stayed for days or
even weeks.
Here’s a possible scenario. A small group of cowboys
or prospectors gathers around the evening campfire. As they
relax after a long, hard day, the tall tales flow. Meanwhile
the sun slips below the horizon creating a halo effect. In the
twilight zone when landforms take on indistinct outlines,
someone jokingly says, “Wow, that rock looks like a
whale.” And from then on, the name sticks.
Before the area received park status, few except
Native Americans, cowboys, river runners and prospectors
entered this rugged corner of southeast Utah. Even today
a large chunk of these canyonlands remain an untamed
territory - a huge
wilderness that’s
seldom touched
by man - a place
where
bighorn
sheep,
coyote,
deer and kit fox
have
enough
undisturbed space
to freely roam.
In the late
1950s and early 60s, Bates Wilson, then superintendent
of nearby Arches National Monument advocated for
designating this unique geological area as a national park.
Secretary of the Interior, Stewart Udall took the campaign
to Washington in 1961. Utah Democratic Senator, Frank
Moss introduced the Canyonlands Bill to congress in 1962.
After many delays the bill was finally passed on September
3, 1964, and two weeks later, President Lyndon B. Johnson
signed it in to law.
Island In The Sky, with an average elevation of 6,100
feet, is the highest district within Canyonlands National
Park. Situated like a desert island, this sheer-walled plateau
is surrounded by a far-reaching landscape that drops 2,000
feet to the banks of the Colorado and Green Rivers. On
a clear day these elevated views above canyons, mesas,
buttes, fins and spires offer a wondrous horizon-to-horizon
panorama.
In early December I drive up to Island In The Sky to
check out the
Whale
Rock
trail. To get there
I drive ten miles
north of Moab
on Highway 191
and turn left on
to Highway 313.
From here it is
25 miles to the
park’s entrance
station. At the
visitor center it’s six more miles to the right turn on to the
Upheaval Dome Road with approximately four more miles
to the Whale Rock trailhead.
On this chilly, foot stomping day I’m not in the mood
to venture too far away,
and what I find pleases
me immensely - a trail
that isn’t too long, nor
is it too short. Instead
from tail to head, the
Whale Rock trail is just
right. I can easily handle
a one-mile round trip
excursion with a gradual
ascent of only 250 feet.
At an elevation of
5,650 feet, it begins
with a short sandy walk
through the classic desert
vegetation of pinyons,
junipers, yucca, and prickly pear. Almost immediately I’m
moving upward as I follow the cairns (piles of rocks.) As I
scamper up mounds and ledges I have a lot of fun trying to
guess which direction the trail will swing to reach its final
destination.
Near where the cairns stop, I can see directly ahead
the last extremely short, high stepping ascent that will
take me to the top where a mind-boggling view spreads
out in all directions.
This presentation
is so staggering
in its dimensions
and scope that it
must be observed
to be believed - a
scalloped, chiseled
land with monstershaped landforms
reaching up to greet
a lake-blue, cloud-speckled sky - canyon after canyon
marching along in all directions with the biggest gash
being where the Green River flows - Cleopatra’s Chair sits
above The Maze, the most remote district of Canyonlands
National Park - and finally I see The Needles with its
by Marcy Hafner
also visualize slanted figurines with their heads tilted to the
sky - flat-topped rocks capped with enormous hats – and
high-walled medieval fortresses.
But wait, there’s more to add to this already stunning
scene as I turn my attention to the dramatic climax on the
horizon - the bunched up Bookcliffs running along the
northern skyline - the distinctive silhouette of the La Sals
now heavily mantled in a winter coat of pure white snow
to the southeast - and in a westerly direction the elegantly
snowcapped peaks of the Henry Mountains.
Only the hardy and adaptable survive the extremes of
this high desert environment. One lesson in tenacity is the
pinyons and junipers that are directly beneath me. With
just a pittance of dirt within a cracked wall, they amazingly
cling to life as they wait for the next precious parcel of
moisture to arrive.
Sandpaper rough, this tough old Whale Rock, which
I am getting acquainted with, has been around for a long,
long time – a span of eons that is hard to grasp. Weathered
by water and ice, fleeced by snow, blasted by howling wind,
seared by the summer sun, and jolted by rampaging, gullywashing lightning storms, he’s watched these big events
for millions and millions of years as they played their part
in sculpting the landscape that we see today.
Despite the breezy, nagging cold, I stay much longer
than I intended. But then, I never sat on the top of a rock
whale before relishing the off-season, completely-bymyself solitude. Nothing disturbs this rare silence. Even
the ravens, which I do miss, haven’t flown in to rustle up a
long-winded conversation.
Gradually, though, the nip in the air nudges me out of
my sedentary position. I need to start moving and generate
some heat! But before I leave I can’t resist another long,
full circle look at this over powering landscape, which like
a magnet attracts visitors from around the world.

NATURE HAPPENINGS
January the Midpoint of Winter
January represents a gateway into winter in Canyon
Country and a harbinger of spring. It is a time when cold
and darkness settles over the landscape, offering a dramatic
change from the sun-blistering days of summer. It is a
time when inversions block out the sun or when dense fog
cloaks the river bottoms. It is a time of peace and quiet,
a time when visitation is low and a great time to explore.
During January, temperature inversions may hang over
the Moab Valley, shutting out the sunlight. Caused by an
increase in temperature with altitude and often with snow
cover on the ground, the canyons take on a blasé that betrays
their true colors. Stagnant air and dense clouds cap the valley,
although one can drive higher up into the mountains or
surrounding plateaus
to punch through this
inversion layer. From
these higher vantages,
buttes and spires may
poke through the
clouds, giving the
landscape a surreal
feeling.
Snow and ice are often present during January, creating
opportunities to ski, snowshoe or ice skate, to access the
wilds with unique modes of transport. As snow levels in the
La Sals and Abajos accumulate, wildlife is forced to move
to lower elevations in search of browse or prey, depending
upon their diet. Deer and elk migrate into mountain brush or
oak thickets at mid-mountain elevations or gather out on the
sagebrush flats. Pronghorn herds swell in the Cisco Desert
grasslands; a herd of over 100 animals is not uncommon.
Even if the animals
are not present, the
snowpack creates
a canvas painted
with tracks that
betray the presence
of
pronghorn,
rabbits, mice and
other creatures.
The reptiles are nowhere to be seen during winter, the
temperatures too low for these cold-blooded creatures. But
when a warm front passes through, small side-blotched
lizards may stir and soak in the warmth. Temporary
excursions exploit the conditions and they forage for hardy
insects that also appear during these
brief respites.
January also offers temporary
housing for wildlife, mostly birds
that escape the frozen terrain of their
northern or Arctic homes. Roughlegged hawks, summer residents
of the Arctic tundra, hunt for small
mammals, while rosy finches
descend from their high elevation
summer habitats to search for seeds
and varied thrushes, nicknamed “Alaskan robins,” visit
town before returning north in spring.
This winter, a flock of sandhill cranes have been seen
in the Moab Valley. Their graceful long-legged moves and
feathery bodices are a contrast to their harsh, trumpeting
calls that hark back
to a time when
woolly
mammoths
and Harrington goats
roamed this landscape.
Sandhills
generally
winter farther south
in New Mexico or
Arizona,
so
does
this wintering group
herald some change
in ancestral patterns influenced by changes in
climate? Or are they returning to old haunts,
vacated in recent history for reasons unknown?

Of course, every January is not the same. Past winter
recollections of cold and snow may melt during a warm spell
the following year. A cross-country ski outing up in Arches
National Park might be a once-in-a-decade adventure or a
reality for several weeks. A winter
backpacking trip might be possible
without carrying multiple sleeping
bags or crossing treacherous
expanses of ice-covered slickrock.
Or the reverse could be just as true.
To me, that is the beauty of
January: dynamic, unpredictable,
opportunistic, adventurous. When
the possibilities to have a canyon
or hike all to your own exist,
accompanied by nothing more than the conditions and
creatures of winter, that is a time worth savoring.

ASTROLOGY HAPPENINGS
Your Horoscope for January 2016
Congratulations and welcome to 2016. 2015 was so full
of change that many just tucked their heads under the sand
and tried to pretend all was returning to normal. 2016 will
be proof that normal is a highly fluid concept. The planetary
energies for this year are a little up, then down, then zigzaggy as each of the outer planets – Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus,
Neptune and Pluto vie for their part in creating in humanity
a greater awareness and understanding of the transformation
presently occurring.
In this transitional period, we are making our decisions
to either fight against change (running the gamut from family
traditions to dealing on a personal level with global shifts) or
go with the flow and discover the gifts and beneficial changes
that can come into our lives if we let go of the way things
have been, and allow manifestation of the things that can be.
However, it may be another five years until the Capricorn
Climax in 2020 when Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto are all in
Capricorn, before real structure can be implemented.
In the meantime, this year, Jupiter is focusing on working
conditions, health solutions (clean air, water and food for
all) and may challenge Saturn’s traditional philosophical or
theological beliefs on alternative methods of health care in
early April or late May then it roars through Virgo and enters
Libra, the sign of balance in September.
Saturn in Sagittarius is lending support and structure to
Uranus in Aries who is busy creating new technologies, geopolitical and economic ideas and literally thinking outside of
the box, wanting to go where no man has gone before.
Saturn in Sag is also getting a dose of nebulousness
and dissolution from squaring Neptune, in the area of
fundamentalism (be it religious, scientific, conservative or
liberal) and the structures holding back the freedom and
well-being most people on this planet strive for.
Neptune is doing what it does best – dissolving and /
or magnifying illusion, deception, fraud, conspiracy. Look
for surprise revelations around Big Oil and Big Pharma –
not much can be hidden for long with these aspects. With
the square from Saturn, these huge corporate entities will
have their secrets tumbling out of the closets. It’s up to the
public to speak out about what’s to be the result of these
revelations. Do we change the rules in favor of humanity or
play victim to business profits as usual or ignore it all and
give our power for change away?
Altogether, it would seem to be an exciting year. Focus
on connecting with like-minded people and working with
the power of prayer or meditation. We can create miracles
when we work together. What used to take decades or longer
can change in the blink of an eye. Look for the signs or
symptoms of transformation in the news. They are there if
you look. Look around in your own lives and see how things
are changing for the better. I double dare you. Happy 2016.
Aries— The new moon on January 9th
has Sun, Moon, Mercury, and Pluto in
Capricorn squaring the Sun of those of you
born between April 3rd and the10th creating
irritation and some frustration on the home
front, travel or education. Uranus is still
inspiring you with new ideas. If you aren’t acting on them
you may miss a great opportunity.
By Victoria Fugit
July 23 - Aug. 24
Leo—Jupiter, still in your second house of
money, can make you less cautious in investing.
Look carefully and consult professionals that
you trust before taking just anyone’s advice –
make sure the investments you make are sound
and not too good to be true. Err on the side of
caution and common sense, rather than optimism right now.
Home projects may go slowly until February.
Dec. 22 - Jan. 20
Virgo— Jupiter is conjunct your Sun,
Neptune is in opposition and Saturn is square
your Sun. This could be a set-up for
chameleon-like changes in your personality
and mannerisms, depending upon who you
happen to be with, rather than being your
authentic self. This year is a challenge to discover who, what
and how you want to be. If you find you are fulfilling others’
goals, pull back, go inside and have a good talk with yourself.
Aquarius—Things are on the upswing
for you this month. New friends and those
you’ve been out of contact with for some time
may bring wisdom and comfort. Be cautious
with your temper or irritability around the full
moon on the 23rd. You may be attracted to, and
attract people from cultures or lifestyles different from your
own. Be open to the change this may bring.
Aug. 24 - Sept. 22
Libra— You might find partnership a bit
erratic or unpredictable, this month. If you put
some money away for unexpected expenses in
February, you won’t be caught short. Change
is affecting you now on a deeper level and you
may not wish to share it with others. Don’t
worry that your romantic side seems too serious; everything
will be less pressured in the spring.
Sep. 23 - Oct. 23
Scorpio— Mars will be in Scorpio during
January and Venus moves into your sign at the
full Moon on the 23rd. This combination lends
mystery and charisma to your persona. Other
than some financial belt-tightening or
restructuring, life seems to be going well. There may be some
unexpected, but likely positive changes in your work. Don’t
get caught up in illusions about love, children or your creative
process right now, or there may be disappointment. If you
have real clarity in these areas, you can achieve miracles.
Oct. 24 - Nov. 22
Sagittarius— Saturn has made you far
more practical and earth-bound than you’re
accustomed to. This is a good thing at the
moment, but don’t lose your sense of humor
and whimsy. Pluto has been transforming
your concept of money and financial realities, perhaps even
pulling the rug out from under you. Pay attention and realize
you, your work and other people are not the source of wealth
but rather your connection to God or the Universe.
Nov. 23 - Dec. 21
Mar. 21 - Apr. 20
Taurus— Jupiter is still in the 5th house
of love, romance and creativity. If you have
children, they may be demanding more from
you at this time. If you are in love it may be
the real thing, especially with the grand trine
of Jupiter, Pluto and your Sun. Make sure
your favorite is not dominating or a loner, but someone
deeply committed to integrity and principles and to you.
Apr. 21 - May 21
Gemini— There may be more burdens or
responsibilities in the area of relationships.
This could bring greater stability or endings.
Reach for the highest good for all and don’t
let Neptune cloud your instincts. Listening
to your intuition is a big advantage in career
or work, especially if you are in an artistic or musical field.
Let your identity tapestry unravel a little, it will give greater
clarity and joy.
May 22 - June 21
Cancer— Cancer, come out and play
with the Universe. Uranus is pushing your
innovative boundaries and Neptune is filling
you with inspiration and creative imagination.
Write that novel, learn to play an instrument,
take those online classes you have always
wanted. You may be a butterfly inside that cocoon instead of
a crab in a shell. You won’t know unless you peek out and
discover those deeper desires.

Capricorn— Self-interest is all well and
good, provided it is enlightened self-interest
with a generous helping of compassion. Don’t
get so hard-headed this month that you can’t
see another point of view. Keep your mind and
options open and inspiration for creative
resolution flows in effortlessly. Trust that sudden or
unexpected disruptions will end for the better.
Jan. 21 - Feb. 18
Pisces— January is an extremely positive
month for you. Even if obstacles pop up, you
will walk through them as if they didn’t exist.
Opportunities to exhibit your skills, judgment,
capabilities and common sense raise your
worth at work. Jupiter in your 7th house of marriage softens
any domestic problem before it starts. Intuition and guidance
are strong. Enjoy -- but don’t get too complacent.

About Victoria...
The passion I have for Astrology began when I was
twenty-four. I had been traveling in Europe for months
and was becoming more and more curious about the
letters my mom was sending me. They were waiting
for me in each city or town I went to and it was as if
she had a spy following me. She seemed to know my
every move. Then she started to give me advice about
what was coming up and what to watch out for. Coming
home, I was horrified to learn that both she and my
dad (LT. Colonel in the Air Force) were involved in
Astrology. I asked them how two well-educated and
intelligent people could possibly believe a superstitious
myth that was so lacking in any proof of its claims. My
dad said he had no belief in it. It worked, so he used
it, much like electricity – we don’t believe in it, don’t
know exactly how it works, but are happy to turn on the
lights with it.
So I set out to prove that they were deluded.
After three years of study in San Francisco and taking
a correspondence course from a school in England, I
apologized.
Astrology has been part of my life ever since and
has led to my involvement with researchers and teachers
in the human potential movement, such as Jean Houston
(Institute for Mind Research), Werner Erhardt (EST),
Elmer Green (Duke University), Joe Kamiya (early
researcher in bio-feedback), Swami Rama (Himalayan
Institute) and others.
Sun sign astrology obviously doesn’t give the depth
of knowledge available in a full reading. Each chart is
unique, like snowflakes. But it’s fun and entertaining.
Hope you get both from this column.

UNIVERSITY HAPPENINGS
USU-Moab Adds New Academic Advisor
Andrea Olding has been added to the academic
advising staff for Utah State University - Moab. In her new
role as an academic advisor Olding will assist students with
course planning, academic counseling, and registration.
She will also work with other campus resources such as
the library, testing center, writing and tutoring centers, and
career services to help students meet their needs and goals.
Olding is a graduate from the USU Moab campus with
degrees in Sociology and Family Human Development, and
Special Education. She is currently enrolled in courses in a
master’s degree program for education, and will finish the
master’s program while working in her new advisory role.
“I have long wanted to work for USU Moab and am
so excited this opportunity came about.” said Olding of
her new position. “Working with students of all ages is a
passion of mine and helping them meet their
goals is so much fun.”
As she begins interacting with students at
the Moab campus she hopes to help students
take advantage of the resources and support
programs available through USU, many
of which she states are incredibly valuable
and easily accessible. She hopes to educate
the community about these options to help
encourage Moab locals to consider returning
to school.
Already having earned two bachelor’s
degrees from USU Moab will help Olding be
conscious of the challenges and opportunities
students face while gaining a college education
in a rural setting. Many of the classes and programs offered
at the Moab campus are offered through distance education
broadcasts from Logan or other areas of the state.
“For many, traveling away from home to attend
college is not an option. USU Moab and the other regional
campuses through out the state offer people from all walks
of life, and in all stages of life, an amazing opportunity
www.moabhappenings.com
to get a high-quality, university education in
their own communities.” remarked Olding
about the distance education programs.
Olding grew up in Golden, Colorado, a
Denver suburb, and in Salt Lake City, Utah.
She moved to Moab in 2003, excited to become
part of the small, yet diverse, community.
Her passion for education and helping others
inspired her to further her education after
moving to Moab, a path she continues on
today through earning her master’s degree.
Spring classes will begin on January 11
for all USU campuses. With the addition of
another academic advisor and local scholarship
programs the academic opportunities at USUMoab are better than ever. For more information about
starting or continuing an education at USU-Moab, and to
find out about degree options available locally, visit moab.

ALUMNI HAPPENINGS
Emily Stock- Class of 2006
Grand County High
School alumna Emily Stock
resides here in her beloved
hometown of Moab. After
graduation, Emily attended
the University of Montana
in Missoula, Montana, where
she majored in Environmental
Studies. Emily then earned
her degree in Sustainable
Community Development at
Prescott College in Prescott,
Arizona.
In addition to living in
Arizona and Montana, Emily
has also lived in Oregon and has traveled all over the
world to places such as Mexico, Guatemala, Costa Rica,
Ecuador, Puerto Rico, France, Spain, and several times to
Hawaii. The young globetrotter is now headed to Baja for
the winter. “I try to leave the country to get perspective on
the world and to warm my bones in the winter,” states the
seasoned traveler.
Despite all the beautiful places she has visited, Emily
says that it is the canyons and cliffs that have called her
home time after time, and it is the community that keeps
her here. She was raised in Castle Valley with her sister,
Sarah Stock (a GCHS graduate of class 2004). Both now
live in the City of Moab. Her parents, Tori and Mitch Stock,
still live in the Castle Valley community and have for about
25 years, watching with both positive and apprehensive
feelings the way Moab has changed and
grown.
Emily (along with being department
manager at Moonflower Community
Coop), is now an herbalist here in town
and describes it as more of a lifestyle than
a job. She looks back on her high school
career and remembers the Human Anatomy
and Physiology class, which was a helpful
foundation for the healing arts. Along with
the classes that helped shape her career,
she recalls often finding herself in the art
room. “I painted as much as I possibly
could. I think high school is emotionally
hard on almost everyone and to be able to have the artistic
resources to channel all the strenuous emotional growth
is, retrospectively, really important!” Emily says. This
explains why she was voted “most artistic” in her senior
class. Another fond memory Emily has of high school is
when she and her sister, Sarah, reincarnated the high school
newspaper after many years of not having one. She claims
to get a sense of ‘Red Devil Pride’ every time she picks up
an issue of The Devil’s Advocate.
After her experiences with previous jobs like waiting
tables, working on farms, community organizing, being a
barista, cleaning, house painting, landscaping, and much
by Coya Pair
more, Emily finds contentment in where she now is in life.
“I am definitely happier than I was when I was in high
school. It’s hard to find the inspiration
of life when the world is small, and
you don’t know where you’re headed,”
Emily says. She also adds a thanks to
all the GCHS staff that helped lead her
in the right direction and shape her into
the person she is today. “The integrity
of intention through work, and doing
what makes you happy, are things that
were supported by quite a few amazing
teachers when I was in school,” she
exclaims. “Now, in my mid-twenties, I
am fully inspired. Herbalism has changed
my life; I’ve never
been so dedicated to anything before,
and there is clarity in dedication.”

MUSEUM HAPPENINGS
Unique and Historical Quilt
The Museum of Moab is the Moab Valley’s center for
cultural and natural history of eastern Utah and the Moab
area. The exhibits include everything from a Jurassic
dinosaur found just south
of town to archaeological
artifacts to tools and
historical artifacts from
pioneer settlement to mining
equipment and geologist
Charlie Steen’s bronzed
boots commemorating the
day in 1952 that he found
the Mi Vida mine deposit.
Among
the
many
unique artifacts in the
Museum’s collection is
one just recently put out
on display. It is also one
of the more colorful items
that is out in the exhibits
area. This is a large quilt
made a number of years
ago by Gloria Harris and
composed of fragments
of neck ties donated by
more than 20 men of the
Moab area, including Dan
O’Laurie, Andy Steen, Dick
Unger, and others. The quilt
was rescued from Gloria
Harris’s home by Dr. Jay P. Munsey years ago during a
house fire. Dr. Munsey donated tie material to the quilt as
well so it was appropriate that he rescue it. Adding to the
quilt’s unique local history, it
is rumored to have started at a
party when the idea originated
and then much of the donated
material was collected on the
spot, the first tie being clipped
off its owner’s neck! This quilt
was donated recently by Gloria
Harris and is now on display in
the Museum of Moab in all its
colorful glory.
So stop on in and see what’s
new. If you’ve not visited yet,
come check out the Museum of
Moab at 118 East Center Street!
The Moab Neck Tie Quilt and
many other treasures await…
See our website at
www.moabmuseum.org

information on our exhibits,
tours, and programming.

Movie & Western Memorabilia Museum
at Red Cliffs Lodge
Red Cliffs Lodge, on the banks of the mighty
Colorado River, is home to the Moab Museum of Film
& Western Heritage. The lodge is built on the old George
White Ranch, a key location for nine of the big westerns
including Rio Grande, Cheyenne Autumn, Ten Who Dared,
The Commancheros, and Rio Conchos.
The late George White was founder of the Moab to
Monument Valley Film Commission, the longest ongoing
film commission in the world.
In the museum one can learn more about film locations,
how the sets are built, and how the filming process is
managed on nature’s own sound stage. On display in the
museum are production photographs, movie posters,
autographed scripts, props from the many pictures filmed in
the area, and displays about the western ranching heritage.
For information, call Red Cliffs Lodge at 259-2002.
Through the magnificent landscapes of southeastern
Utah, writers have been inspired and stories born here.
Zane Grey, the famous western novelist, traveled through
the area in 1912. His visit inspired him to write his book
Riders of the Purple Sage. The book was made into a
movie starring Ed Harris and Amy Madigan, and filmed
on locations around Moab.
A partial list of stars
that have made movies in Moab
John Wayne, Maureen O'Hara, Henry Fonda,
Lee Marvin, Rock Hudson, Jimmy Stewart, Richard Boone, Anthony
Quinn, Mickey Rooney, Shirley Temple, Kris Kristofferson, Billy
Crystal, Robert Duvall, Gene Hackman, Bill Murray, Jack Palance,
Susan Sarandon, Geena Davis, Ted Danson,
Tom Cruise, and many more.
Stunts, Stars And Legends
Articles and drawings by John Hagner
Behind the scene story
How The West Was Won (1962)
There was a dramatic action scene involving a buffalo
stampede, charging toward a water tower, causing it to
collapse with three stuntmen (Harvey Parry, Joe Yrigoyen
and Troy Melton at the top.
To accomplish this,m a bulldozer driver was hired to
push the water tower over.
All in place ... set and ready to shoot the scene, the
Director yelled ‘Action’!
The bulldozer driver was to push the water tower
forward and the stuntmen were to get set and ready to ride
it down to the ground.
Several large cardboard boxes with ‘Talmadge Pads’
(invented by the legendary stunt, Richard (Metzetti)
Talmadge, were placed in position.
As the bulldozer driver began pushing the water
tower forward, water started splashing back on him and he
panicked, and suddenly put the vehicle in reverse, causing
the water tower to fall out of position for the stuntmen to
land safely on the landing area.
This resulted in the stuntmen landing short of the
safety area, causing serious injury. Harvey Parry suffered
broken heels...when this happens to a stuntman or any
athlete, he is unable to get a spring in his jumps or leaps.
Joe Yrigoyen and Troy Melton also broke bones.
After recuperating, all three were back to work...only
Parry did mostly acting...playing ‘drunks’!

PET HAPPENINGS
Decoding the Pet Food Label: What Are Natural Flavors?
“Contains natural flavors” seems all well and good
when we see it on a bag of pet food, but does it mean what
it sounds like, or are there other implications behind this
seemingly innocuous message?
Marketing is first and foremost in the processed pet
food industry and so we see photos of vibrant colored
vegetables and juicy chunks of meat, fish and fowl
dripping in gravy and juices.
The packaging lists all the
benefits, healthy attributes
and natural flavors we’ll
find within. Look at pet
food labels and see how
many foods contain natural
flavors. The FDA allows
vague
terminology
in
the
labeling
of
many
foods.
Manufacturers
say
this vague terminology
is
necessary
to
protect proprietary tastes and smells. So
what does it mean when we see these words
in a pet food ingredient list?
In the United States natural flavors may include any
of the following:
The
essential
oil,
oleoresin,
essence
or
extractive,
protein
hydrolysate, distillate or any
product of roasting, heating or
enzymolysis, which contain
the flavoring constituents
derived from a spice, fruit
or fruit juice, vegetable or
vegetable juice, edible yeast,
herb, bark, bud, root, leaf
or any other edible portions
of the plant, meat seafood,
poultry, eggs, dairy products,
or fermentation products
thereof,
whose
primary
function in food is flavoring
rather than nutritional.
The problem is if the label
says natural flavor, you do not
know what that includes. The goal off adding flavorant is
to mimic or enhance a natural taste and aroma. There are
hundreds of natural flavors. Not all natural flavors are bad,
but two of the most commonly used natural flavors in pet
food are monosodium glutamate (MSG) and diacetyl.
MSG is heavily used in Asian cuisine and other foods
as a flavor enhancer. MSG is a byproduct of soybean
chemistry and is an excitotoxin. Excitotoxins can cause
nerve and brain damage. Glutamate is a natural amino
acid that functions as a neurotransmitter. When it is in
excess in the body from consuming high concentrations,
nerve impulses are rapidly fired to the point of exhaustion:
excited to death! Many people complain they get migraine
headaches from consuming foods with MSG. Many pets
have unexplained agitation or discomfort, it possible that
they are suffering from headache or abnormal
neuro stimulation from a hidden source of
MSG in their food or treats.
Diacetyl is a natural byproduct
of fermentation and is also
synthesized
by
chemical
manufacturers
and
its
safe use is controversial.
Diacetyl is put in
microwavable
popcorn to imitate
butter flavoring, in snack foods,
candies
and
pet foods including canned foods,
dry kibble and treats. At levels where diacetyl is normally
present in foods, it’s safe. When diacetyl is extracted and
synthesized in large volumes to become a food enhancing
natural flavor, it becomes a
danger to employees who
inhale it and a potential danger
to those who ingest the residues
produced from the processing.
The safety of diacetyl is
dependent on the combination
or proper synthesis and raw
materials. If an error occurs
in this process, a carcinogenic
residue is produced. Exposure
to flavorings using diacetyl
is associated with adverse
effects on the respiratory
system including bronchiolitis
obliterans, a debilitating and
potential fatal lung disease.
Aggressive and phobic
behaviors seem to be on the rise
in pets, similarly the number
of canine and feline patients with nasal and oral cancers
seen in veterinary practice is epidemic. To think that we
may be unintentionally feeding our pets neurotoxins and
carcinogens on daily basis is unsettling. What can we do
by Kaye Davis
to stop food manufacturers from adding natural flavors and
let us know what they are?
First, read labels and stop purchasing foods with
natural flavors! Certainly many natural flavors may be
harmless, but until we can be assured of the presence of
only true, safe, real food ingredients in our pets food, is it
worth the risk to have them consume those that may have
serious adverse effects? Consumer demand can change
manufacturing practices and cause industrial changes much
faster than government regulatory efforts. Your awareness
and efforts to share your knowledge with other pet owners
will quickly impact the pet food and treat industry.
DID YOU KNOW?
• The Moab BARKery has an ingredient policy; we
use this to determine if a product is an appropriate item
to stock the shelves in the store. At minimum, we do not
allow pet foods with corn, wheat, soy, meat meals (meals
that do not identify their animal source) or by-products.
We do the research for you, so you can be assured that you
have quality products to choose from.
• The Moab BARKery does grooming. Grooming
is available by appointment
only. Call today for an
appointment. All size dogs
welcome.
• The
Moab
BARKery is moving. In
February 2016, we will
be moving in to our new
location at 200 North 100
West (current location
of Wild Rose’s
Imports). We will
have a larger space
for
grooming
services, two bays
for self-service dog
wash and parking!
The space is larger
which will allow us
to add new food and
pet related items. In
preparation for our
move we have a lot
of items like toys,
collars, leashes and
more on clearance.

January 15 -18, 2016
Join the Canyonlands AmeriCorps VISTA Project in
celebrating the legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr. Help us create
a public art project commemorating the civil rights movement
and exploring the holiday’s meaning today.
Throughout December and January, we are collecting
community members’ response to the prompt, “What does
Martin Luther King Day mean to you?” These responses will be
written on paper hand tracings. We invite Moab businesses to
display these hands the weebend of Jan. 15th, and to encourage
their customers to participate.
On MLK Day on Jan. 18th, we will gather all of the paper
hands and create a public display at the Moab Arts & Recreation
Center. The exhibit will be up until Feb. 18th.
