I agree with You stealth6! Besides with today's computer program, One can put oneself in a picture next to it...complete with Your shadow falling on/or beside it. In fact, I TOTALLY agree with You. For those who want to go out there, trust me, there are other, more important things to do and to go to. ChgersSo, this is "in my neighborhood". Very close to where I live (relatively to you all anyway). And I hike in these canyons regularly.
It has been known about for a while by some of us locals.
It is real and not a hoax. Really. Trust me. Would I be sly about such a thing?
Some of the info being stated about it's location is not exactly correct.
It is certainly "pretty far out there", but it is not quite so remote as is being claimed, nor is it in the Maze District of Canyonlands National Park.
Yes I do know "exactly where it is", but no I will not assist you in getting there, nor will I confirm anyone's guesses or theories about it's actual location.
One thing (in actual seriousness) I would like to say though is that this area is being completely hammered by idiots tearing up the desert. WAY too many yahoos getting their thrills trashing the place. PLEASE....the last thing we need is to attract even more hordes of douchebags ripping around doing even more damage just to add one more "experience" to their list of things they did (and posted a selfie of themselves on social media) to show everyone how cool they were. Really, DO NOT come here on some stupid adventure to find this thing. So, it's out there and it's unique.....but so what? Do you really need to go see it for yourselves, just to add one more "did it" to your list. Check it out online, see the photos and videos that have already been posted (and there will be more I'm sure), and feel the sense of wonder, and yes even "coolness", but don't be one more in the line of idiots out there trashing the place just to take your selfie with it. I'm sure you can still lead a full and "awesome" life even if you don't have a picture of yourself standing next to this. And please, please, please, anyone who gets the idea that doing something like this yourself (just to show how unique, creative, and interesting you yourself are).....just don't.
For what it's worth, while I obviously have some negative views on this thing, yes even I have a part of me that thinks it's pretty cool.
No, I will not post a picture of myself next to it. Besides, maybe the whole thing is a hoax, right?
