Last Thursday I went hiking on Salt Mountain with Jeff Barrus, editor of the Tooele Transcript Bulletin.  He was planning an article about Iosepa, so I led him to Story Rock, which I wrote about last month.  Having spent many years in the islands (why he ever left them I’ll never know) and the South Pacific, Jeff has a unique perspective on the story of Hawaiian pioneers in Utah.  Click over to the Transcript Bulletin to read his article, “At Iosepa, a few pictures are worth thousands of words.”

    That’s a nice piece. He’s a very good writer. I’d like to see those rocks someday too. It sounds like that is a powerful place.

    I understand that Story Rock is a beautiful place, and the petrographs are something you would want to take a picture of and share with the world- I’ve been there. I understand. However, it is rather disrespectful to take these pictures and display them. It encourages people to go there and puts them in danger of being vandalized.
