SALT LAKE CITY An eastern Utah gully once filled with empty whisky bottles is becoming a year-round resort area owned and operated by the We Indians. Situated at Fort Duohesne, 22 miles west of Vernal on U.S. Highway 40, the Utah Bottle Hollow Resort gets its name from a custom of the U.S. Army Cavalry' unit stationed there from 1330-1912. Whisky was not allowed on the Ute reser- vation at that Lime, so the soldiers drained their bottles just before entering Ute country, left the empties in a gully just outside the reserve. The remarked that the empty bottles were hol- low. They named the gully Bottle Hollow, not because the gully was a hollow filled with bottles, but because the bottles were hollow. The resort opened in July with 42 motel units of mod- ernistic design. Bottle Hollow has swim- ming, boating and dining fa- cilities. Eventually, it will have an art centre and gift shop to exhibit and sell In- dian paintings and jewelry. The Ulcs of Bottle Hollow have six reservoirs and 10 streams stocked with trout. They hunt buffalo, desert big- horn sheep, deer, elk, bear and cougar, as well as pheas- ant, chukar, grouse, geese and wild tin-key.
