Welcome to Desert Marmot...
A site about everything in the American West (and especially southwest) that is not in a big city and has nothing to do with asparagus (I hate asparagus). Other than that, it is pretty much wide open. Select 'About' from the menu bar to learn more about what you have got yourself into or click 'Trips and Pics' for photos and stories of travels around the west.

RECENT MARMOT ACTIVITY
After a long break, I have just posted new pictures from a recent road trip around the Four Corners area of the Southwest including stops at Gallup, Grants, Taos, Tierra Amarilla, Ouray, Hovenweep, and Monument Valley. A little bit of everything - mountains and deserts, hiking and history, towns and country. Click Here to View Trip Report and Photos



--- PLACE OF THE MONTH ---
Cottonwood Steakhouse (Bluff, UT)
Although they also have indoor seating, most folks prefer to settle down on the picnic tables under the giant cottonwood tree that gives the place its name. Lighting is provided by kerosene lamps and your silverware comes wrapped in a cowboy bandana napkin. If that sounds a little hokey, the food is dead serious. Their BBQ ribs were some of the best I've ever had with meat so tender it really did just slide off the bone.
