"I trust that we may not forget the soil is also beautiful..... beautiful from the standpoint of the artist who deals in color and color arrangement." - Professor J.G. Hutton, South Dakota State University, Jan. 9, 1929, Radio, Soil Talk No. 3. 

Desert Mountains

"A rainbow of soil is under our feet; red as a barn and black as a peat. It’s yellow as lemon and white as the snow; bluish gray. So many colors below. Hidden in darkness as thick as the night; The only rainbow that can form without light. Dig you a pit, or bore you a hole, you’ll find enough colors to well rest your soil." - F.D. Hole, A Rainbow of Soil Words, 1985
