Greetings from the midst of the movement and from the open eye of the road. Today, we left the hazy blue and blistering white brown landscape of northern Utah and arrived into the deep red canyon-filled southeast. In the past 48 hours, we passed a truck (pictured above) that we had never seen for ourselves, outside of the DOE image that appeared in our Repository deck; toured the interior of the Clive Facility;  viewed a uranium disposal cell from a scenic highway rest stop overlook; and drove along the edge of a massive uranium pile just outside of Moab, UT, as we watched the geiger counter loaned to us by a friend tick upwards. It is far too early to discern what we will make of it all, or even to take in what we have seen, but we offer these images from our journey in-process.
