“I’d rather wake up in the middle of nowhere than in any city on earth.”

2010-TripWest 069

So said Steve McQueen. Sometimes I agree. But sometimes I wonder if he ever visited New York, Paris, or Rome.

The brothers who popularized that quote, Renny and Terry Russell (in On the Loose) never sourced it. It is also worth noting that Steve McQueen, while pro-nowhere, was not exactly a Green: he was an ex-marine, who loved to race autos and motorcycles, was married three times, and a chronic smoker who died in Juarez after seeking a quack cure for his cancer.

This is a place in southern Utah that shall rename nameless. In honor of Steve McQueen, who died 32 years ago. “The King of Cool.”
