Thread Name: Origins: The Big Rock Candy Mountain(s)
Subject: RE: Big Rock Candy Mountain--Burle Ives' version
In case anyone's interested, the last time I drove by the Big Rock Candy Mountain resort, located in south-central Utah, USA, was closed down and for sale. There is an unusual geologic feature there on the mountainside. I'm not sure which came first, the song or the name of the mountain, but I would guess the song.
