So there is a mystery here, or at least a debate. Inside the Upheaval Dome is a crater. Was the crater formed by the Dome collapsing? Or did a meteor strike cause the crater? Geologists disagree. So therefore I felt it was my responsibility to settle this dispute. Of course I have no geological training, but I tend to be correct quite a bit -- at least in my own mind.

So up the trail we went. Pretty well marked, scenic, pinion and junipers, and sandstone out the wazzoo. Stopped off at the first overlook. Yep, just what I thought. But no need to jump to conclusions or into the crater either. Trudged on up to the second overlook. A fence here made sure there was mo jumping here either. Yep, more viewing led to more support for my original idea of what caused the crater. Rubbed my chin, which hadn't been shaved in over a week and that lent the required gravitas. Debate settled, no question.
