[ We are not alone? Mysterious object found in Utah during sheep count ]

UTAH ‘ Not since a monolith was found on the surface of the moon in Stanley Kubrick’s classic “2001: A Space Odyssey” has a mystery object confounded the greatest minds of our generation.

The Utah Highway Patrol posted a photo to social media Friday showing a curious metallic-looking object found during a count of big horn sheep somewhere in the state.

According to the post, the item was found buried in the “middle of nowhere” with UHP asking the public what they think it is. One person suggested “it fell off the UFO we’ve been seeing in Ogden lately.”

Below the Rim

It was early May, but a raw breeze was blowing as we tracked bootprints through an inch of new-fallen snow. Shortly after dawn, we had parked on the Desert View Drive and set off through the ponderosa forest toward the Grand Canyon, leaving behind the tourist traffic hurtling along the canyon’s South Rim.

After hiking a mile, the three of us’mountaineer Greg Child, photographer Bill Hatcher and I’emerged abruptly from the trees to stand on a limestone promontory overlooking the colossal chasm. The view was predictably sublime’distant ridges and towers blurred to pastel silhouettes by the morning haze; the North Rim, 20 miles distant, smothered in storm; the turgid flood of the Colorado River silenced by the 4,800-foot void beneath our feet.
