What you see in the air photo is the Portal. People commonly camp adjacent to the tailings pile. The Moab city council has been after the DOE for years to do something about this. Big snows in the Rockies this year potentially could result in flooding of the tailings pile this spring. Almost every jeep road we ride on in the Moab area was built by Uranium hunters in the 50's and 60's. This includes Amasa Back, Poison Spider, Porcupine Rim, White Rim, etc.
