BIG LOVE FOR THE QUARRY VISITOR CENTER
For those of you not familiar with it, Big Love is a HBO hit original series focusing on the travails and tribulations of a polygamist Mormon family living in the Wasatch Front and their extended families in the polygamist compounds elsewhere in the state. So, by virtue of its storyline it is a very Utah centric series.
In tonight’s episode, Bill Henrickson, the main male character, is chatting with a close business associate who tells him he is taking off a few days to go ice fishing at Flaming Gorge Reservoir. Bill responds by saying that since Flaming Gorge is in the area, he should stop by Dinosaur National Monument --- they have a brand new Visitor Center and his son went there and loved it.
Well the Visitor Center isn’t nearly completed yet, but this is Big Love’s fifth season and its last. It will be off the air by the time we open. So thanks for the plug, even if it is a tad early.
