What a ride!
I had no intention of driving the entire 105-mile stretch through the Park but, when I got to the only open campground at Mile 51, it was too early to stop. Plus, no surprise, I had no wi-fi signal and I do need to visit my classroom tonight.
But I’m glad I continued on because, as it grew later, other cars became rarer and the sun finally came out for a bit. By the end, it was a drop-dead gorgeous sunset drive.
The ride started like this.
I was surprised to see so many people here on a Monday but I guess I wasn’t the only one delayed by the recent Congressional foolishness. Soon enough, all our vehicles managed to space out and the road didn’t seem congested.
After the crowded environs of the big city, I was ready for some serious natural scenery. You gotta love it – no traffic lights, no billboards, no construction.
But lots of deer. Which are hard to spot.
Here’s my best shot.
And then – something I never expected to see.
Then it happened again – hours later and miles down the road. What are the odds?
I swear, I could hop back on Skyline and do it all over again tomorrow!
On a side note, this morning I got the chance to take a photo I’ve been wanting. My van is built on this very Chevrolet 3500 Extended Van chassis.
Roadtrek shears the Chevy roof off and installs the high-top to make it a lean, mean road-trip machine.
Everything else is just cosmetic. This just fascinates me.
Well ...... better go earn some gas money!
