Adventures: Robert Smithson's Spiral Jetty, Utah

Ever since Robert Smithson's Spiral Jetty became uncovered again in 2004, I had wanted to visit. I studied art history in college and for a few years time, thought I would return to school for a PhD, specifically focusing on land artists like Smithson. I missed on opportunity while driver across the country to San Francisco in 2006, but when driving over 4th of July weekend to my parents new home in Colorado, I demanded--well, politely asked--we stay an extra day to make the pilgrimage.
