Abstract

Moab, Utah, lies on the northwestern end of the Moab Valley salt-intruded anticline on the banks of the Colorado River in east-central Utah, in T.25 and 26S., R.21 E. (38°36'N.,109°32'W.), on the Moab 15’ Quadrangle, in southern Grand County, Utah (Fig. 1). U.S. 163 passes through Moab and along the length of Moab Valley. The elevation at Moab is 4,000 ft(1,467 m). The area is readily accessible with any vehicle, but off-pavement lands are almost entirely privately owned and permission should be secured for specific locality access.
