Michael Liss, who hopes to build a town called Cloud Rock on the 2,000-acre Johnson’s Up-On-Top Mesa 6 miles south of Moab, says the evolution from the project, which was first proposed in the late 1990s, has led him on a quest for discovery that has resulted in finding connections among the Cloud Rock land, Pueblo Bonito in Chaco Culture National Historic Park in New Mexico and other ancient ancestral sites in Mexico. Liss, the self-described Keeper of the Rock, the Spirit of Cloud Rock, will present information about his new archeological discoveries and how Chaco Canyon and other sites are connected to Moab and the planned Cloud Rock development during a July 25 discussion entitled “The Fibonacci Spiral at the Heart of the Chaco Canyon." The presentation begins at 5:30 p.m. at the Grand County Public Library, 257 E. Center St.
