“say that i starved, that i was lost and weary, that i was burned and blinded by the desert sun footsore, thirsty, sick with strange diseases, lonely and wet and cold, but that I kept my dream!”- Everett Ruess
We Love Escalante - Please don't litter!
Not far from here, scratched into the red rock it reads “NEMO, 1934”. The same inscription, just a mile from the first, is carved above the door of an Ancient Pueblo ruin. It was a name Everett Ruess liked and was known to use while traveling nearby places. - Nemo is Latin for “no one”
NEMO’S Drive-Thru is our tribute to the growing and renewed interest in a young man who disappeared into the area around Escalante, Utah; for the people who continue to seek out the places that he traveled, before vanishing into twisted canyons and into the minds of adventurous souls.
