I heard the whole state is made of sand, I hate sand... And the answer to your next question is no, I don't like beaches either.

Moab is a cool place I'm probably going this Saturday, taking my dirt hike though. I'll take some pictures.

No pics, sorry folks. Even if they existed, they wouldn't be shared!

I know exactly how it would be done, but I don't think I have the skills to do it right.
First, you need to make a mold of the grips. Then, you need to make a slightly undersized version of the grips, and glue the gator skin to it, then you can pour resin into the mold, and put the undersized grips into it. Finally, you drill it (VERY carefully, it will be somewhat brittle), clean it up/size it, and polish it to a mirror shine.
When it's done, the skin will be slightly magnified, and look like its on the surface. The hard part is trying to pour the resin and get it to set without developing bubbles, and then drilling it later (I guess you could use a dowel so that you don't have to drill, but you still might have to size the holes some).

Here's the types of resin (polyester resin) you would probably use. (might be able to find it cheaper elsewhere)

The museum sounds a lot more interesting than eating a lizard. Mud wrestling and gator grips sounds like a good day.
