Huge Pile of Radioactive Waste Near Moab

One of my all time favorite photographic locations is the Moab area in Utah. Arches and Canyonlands National Parks are close, as well as Dead Horse Point State Park. I spent several great days in the area and I love this land. So I was shocked when I read about the 16 million ton uranium mining tailings pile just across the road from Arches…

This is a result of 30 years of active uranium ore processing (mostly during the cold war).

You can read more about the cleanup project on moabtailings.org.
