I can't drive and I also can't fly, so there are many places I can't visit. I haven't been sleeping well lately, and last night at about three am I found these ponds, strangely blue, in the deserts of Utah, near the Colorado River. I think they're beautiful, and they reminded me of just how astonishing it is that today we can see places on the internet that are really difficult to access, even for those living nearby. The closest town to these bodies of water is Moab, twenty miles away, and there is a road that runs through them, but I doubt it's open to the public.
But what are these ponds, exactly, and why are they there?
