"In the Polar Mesa area of southeastern Utah, uranium was mined from the early 1900s to 1980. During the earlier years, material was hauled off the mesa by mule pack trains.

This area is still very wild for being so close to Moab, Utah, and four-wheel-drive roads go all around the top of the Mesa.

Some of the scenery is spectacular. An old miner once said, 'from the top of the meas, on a clear day you could see way past tomorrow.'"
