Letter: Leave the desert monolith standing

(Zak Podmore | The Salt Lake Tribune) A nearly 10-foot tall steel sculpture that discovered in a remote canyon in San Juan County in mid-November drew attention from around the world.

Regarding the newly discovered monolith in San Juan County, I would promote keeping it in place. It should be embraced rather than rejected.
It is unique, simple and beautiful. It also is a nice contrast with the redrock environment, and its satin finish reflects the surrounding area.
Its mystery adds another element to this story. I think it should be considered a gift for all of us. Kudos to the sculptor.
