In a region filled with utterly unknown yet often beautiful ranges, the Deep Creek Mountains of far western Utah are perhaps the most totally obscure yet thoroughly enchanting range of the Great Basin. Miles and miles from any major road and set in the middle of a brutal desert, many people in Utah have never even heard of the Deep Creeks. Despite this, this range is actually higher than the famous and dominant Wasatch Range (high point of Mount Nebo at 11,875') in Utah's Rockies. This great height gives the Deep Creeks their namesake streams, pleasant forests, and wide-ranging views in all directions, all without the civilization and crowds found in other similar ranges.

Probably the most striking thing about the Deep Creek Mountains is the bright white rock that crowns the summits of Ibapah and Haystack peaks, making the range look snow-capped when seen from a distance, such as from U.S. highway 93A in Nevada.

Man of Steel opened yesterday, a much-anticipated reboot of the story of Superman¡¯s origins. The title character is played by British actor Henry Cavill, who appeared at the June 12 U.K. premier of the movie in London sporting a Tom Ford suit and an Omega Seamaster wristwatch. It has been reported that in 2005 Cavill was a contender to play the new James Bond in Casino Royale, which hit theaters in 2006. Apparently, the producers found him too ¡°young¡± for the role at the time, and it was given to Daniel Craig. This is interesting because both James Bond and Daniel Craig are Omega ambassadors, though both of their model choices generally fall in the sporty Seamaster direction. The version of the elegant Omega Seamaster that Cavill sports includes an annual calendar function. This replica omega Seamaster addition to the automatic movement displays day and date, and will only need to be manually corrected on March 1 due to the differing lengths of February. One very notable thing about the Seamaster¡ªand every other movement now made by Omega¡ªis that it contains the Co-Axial escapement invented by Dr. George Daniels and serialized by Omega over the course of more than ten years to make it perfect for use in a wristwatch movement. The finely finished movement can be seen through the sapphire crystal case back of this officially certified chronometer¡ªwhich means that the movement has undergone a series of grueling tests performed by Switzerland¡¯s Contr?le Official Suisse de Chronom¨¨tres (C.O.S.C. for short), a non-profit organization established in 1973 in Switzerland to certify accuracy. The version that Cahill wears is housed in a 41 mm red gold case that is water-resistant to 100 meters. On a brown leather strap it retails for $23,900 in the United States.
