Welcome to the world famous Hole in the Rock. It's a 14-room house that was a roadside stop and diner way back when. They dynamited into the side of this mountain and kept expanding until they built themselves a 5,000 square foot home.

The diner opened in 1945 and was where you see the kitchen now. The husband did all the work himself and was also a taxidermist... His first project was his pet donkey Harry. Maybe he should have started on roadkill first. Poor Harry. And look at his horse!

Hole in the Rock is south of Moab, Utah near Canyonlands on U.S. Highway 191.
