Red Rock and the Greatest Snow

By Dan Eastman
Utah State Senator, District 23

I am working with a group on a new design for Utah’s license plates. Check it out. This is just a prototype, but it captures red rock country and the Greatest Snow on Earth - the two natural wonders synonymous with Utah.

I have traveled all over the world and can proudly defend our claim to the Greatest Snow on Earth. The only place I have skied that even comes close to our powder is between Lake Louise and Banff, in Alberta, Canada. The snow flakes were the size of quarters and slid out of my hands like poker chips. I remember thinking, “This is almost as good as the snow at Alta.”

Let me know what you think about the new design.

Read the Deseret Morning News Article here.

My bill is SB 73.

And, Yes, you still have to put one on the front of your car. :-(

As a designer, I think it looks great. As a snowboarder, I'd rather see the guy snowboarding instead of skiing. :)

Thanks, Connor. The red rock on the actual plate will be .. red. Well, orange. This picture makes it look brown. Also - I think they are going to choose different petroglyphs.

I think it looks great. I have to get a new car now to put a new plate on it.

People will not be able to identify anything on this plate aside from the number. Go back to the drawing board. The colors are in conflict. The fonts are a mess. The slogans are pedestrian.
