Here's the route we took yesterday...
Yesterday's drive, 139 miles (222 kms)
Yes, we purposely took this route east of the Salt lake City area to avoid the congestion and to avoid being on the Interstate in general. So much more scenic, although I'm sure we're using a little more gasoline in the process. One of those things that we think is worth it.
Variable weather yesterday. Didn't see much of our blue sky and sunshine. It even looked like we were going to have some storms, but other than a few raindrops all we saw were really dark clouds.
Here are some pics along the way...
Northern Utah scenery.
Lots of twisty mountain roads.
More dark clouds.
But only a few raindrops.
More dark clouds rumble through.
Some nice camp sites at the bottom of this valley, but they wanted $10 per night.
Beautiful view of the south end of Flaming Gorge Reservoir.
We turned down this single lane track for about a mile. It had been graded earlier in the day so we were lucky!
And we ended up at this spot at GPS 41.14099, -109.57420
A nice roast in the oven that we had bought on sale at $3.99 a pound!
Dinner is served. And yes, it was delicious!
Nobody around for miles, except for some pronghorn antelope, and rabbits. Slept like a rock.
Today we have a bit of a long driving day for us,about 225 miles (360 kms) to Jackson, Wyoming just south of Yellowstone National Park.
