    (SALT LAKE CITY, Utah) - The Utah Geological Survey (UGS) kicks off a new way to familiarize yourself with the state. It is called “Spot the Rock” and it is a way to show off Utah’s spectacular geologically themed sights.

    The UGS will post pictures or videos starting today and every Thursday on Twitter and Facebook. They will be places that UGS geologists might see, but are not necessarily seen by the general public.

    The first entry is today! It is a mysterious place where hissing and bubbling ground can be found. If you have a conviction, guess, or even an inkling of where the photographs were taken, leave your answers as replies or comments on our Twitter or Facebook pages. The location of the photographs or videos will be announced the following week, prior to the posting of the next “Spot the Rock” feature.

    “We definitely have some unique places in Utah that aren’t too well known,” says UGS geologist Marshall Robinson. “We hope this will be a fun and educational way to enlighten people about our fantastic geologic wonders.”

    The weekly “Spot the Rock” feature can easily be accessed by following us on Twitter - @utahgeological or by ‘liking’ us on Facebook – http://ow.ly/sjEmT

    The Utah Geological Survey (UGS), a division of the Utah Department of Natural Resources, provides timely scientific information about Utah’s geologic environment, resources, and hazards.
