We left Kodachrome Basin State Park yesterday (Tuesday) at around 9:00am, but without any idea as to where to stop for the night. We're trying to do minimum 120 miles (200 kms) per day, but there's so much to see along the way.
We took highway 12 northeast towards Loa. Its a scenic byway that runs between part of Dixie National Forest and it is certainly scenic!
It's not only in Mexico that find livestock on the roads.
This little one was very young, When it stood up, it was still pretty wobbly!
Highway 12 north...worthwhile scenic route!
We'd love to do some hiking in that canyon. But, no time!
Some cloudy weather moving in.
Sherman had to do some mountain climbing yesterday!
Getting up there!
Still a bit of snow around at this altitude.
We ended up doing 134 miles (213 kms) yesterday. We found a boat launch at Forsyth Reservoir in Fishlake National Forest. There's a free camping area here, (38.521141, -111.527731) and we're the only ones around. Beautiful spot for an overnight! It's at 8,000 ft elevation though, so hopefully it won't get too cold overnight. Our Mr. Heater is only supposed to work up to 7,500 ft because the low oxygen sensor supposedly kicks in, but I've read reports that people have used it at higher elevations without a problem. (Edit - it worked fine!).
Just after we parked up, some dark clouds appeared and we had a little snow squall.
Fortunately, it didn't last long and we were soon out for a walk.
Lots of room here for free camping!
Sherman, all by himself.
What a great spot.
Sherman, enjoying the solitude.
The view out our side window.
Heading further north again this morning. Oh, thanks for the tips from those of you who suggested that Yellowstone National Park may still have some roads closed. Sure enough, they do and we'll adjust our route accordingly!
Yesterday's drive 134 miles (214 kms).
