Title Gentile Account, page 016
Description peaks here and there pierced through its soft masses, and rose into the sunny atmosphere above, as if they would fain float off and become clouds themselves. On the other hand a more distant mountain brilliantly coloured red and white orange and gray looked like a sunset cloud lit on the earth. It too was tipped with pure white snow, but un- clouded sunshine blazed upon it making its distant crest the more brightly burnished of the two. The Mormons called it "Kolob"`6 in allusion to some celestial mountain referred to in the Book of Mormon;27 but as United States Government Explorers have been here recently28 it is probably re-christened by the mundane title of some Representative or Senator, whose vote next year may be hoped for to increase the Survey Appropriation. The honour of having such a namesake as Kolob will be to transmit his name to futurity [and] ought certainly to be worth [TK: good many Yank votes] a vote! There were other ranges softened into bluish haze by dis- tance, and others to whose less distant reds had lent a violet hue. Nothing could well be more bewildering; to say that all the colours of the rainbow were represented would be less than the truth, for besides these we had the white snow, and the scarred blackness of the volcanic rocks close to us. ?bKolob, one of the highest mountain peaks in the area, is 9,000 feet high. Still called Kolob, it is northeast of St. George adjoining Zion National Park. However, this description sounds like Steamboat Mountain in Zion National Park.

(See Abraham, Chapter 3, Verse 3.) 28A reference to the second exploration of the Colorado River by the John Wesley Powell Survey, then in progress. See also note 63. 16
