I was stunned when I drove past this beehive for the first time. I think it may even be the one on the state tags, and road signs? Look closely at the base you can see a little black dot at the bottom right, just above the grass – it is a 10-foot cave door. Looks can be deceiving, this thing is almost 200 feet tall.
I am camped about 5 miles from the monolith, and I can even see it from camp. This is the first time the bus has been on slickrock, and the first time I have camped on it.
In the other direction I can see what I am calling the Alien Birthday Cake – at the base you can see the hangers for alien space-craft. I will be exploring both structures tomorrow.
But tonight I am chilling in front of the first campfire I have had in WEEKS!
