Who is Desert Rocks?

In 2006, I visited Moab, Utah for the first time in nearly forty years. A lot had changed since my first visit in 1965, but much remained the same. By 2006, the internet, as we would recognize it today had been entrenched in popular culture for over a decade. Still, in Moab and The West, few businesses had more than a simple webpage to speak about their commercial offerings.

One day in 2007, I visited an Apple Store in California. There, on the sidewall was a large flat screen, showing images of young women frolicking in the Colorado River. At the top of the screen were the words, “Moab Ranch”. Seeing the power in those images, I soon discovered that the URL, http://moablive.com was available.

Immediately, I purchased the Moablive name. Since then, I have purchased over 135 internet names, most of which refer to specific places in Moab and The West. In the past few years, I have used those names in websites, as listed at the bottom of our Links Page. Still, I have many Moab names left to develop or sell. If you are interested in owning your own little bit of Moab or The West, please contact me via the Contact Page on this website.
