by Dora Rollins

Located near the border between Idaho and Utah, the City of Rocks is prized for its mammoth granite formations and beautiful, stark wilderness. Campers, hikers, and, particularly, climbers, think of it as a necessary part of their world, just distant enough from civilization to keep it special and unspoiled.

For years the fastest growing municipality in the state, it is well on its way to becoming a regional powerhouse, both economically and socially.
