Just a quick post as I’m weary after a 299.8 mile day.
The view from Sam’s Club – my home for the night.
Many long days in the saddle this week. Nothing like it for an appreciation of what the original Oregon Trail travelers went through. And they had no ice, no GPS, no pay-at-the-pump, no audiobooks. O Pioneers!
|Are we there yet?|
I feel as though I’ve reached a milestone now that I’m in Utah – a state I’ve never before visited! I look forward to returning to the south end to explore those phenomenal National Parks one day.
Yesterday, I made it to Wyoming.
|Best state flag EVER!|
A rest area affords a gander at the Big sky.
The big news: I finally found the temps I’ve been seeking. As I write this, it’s 76 degrees and the humidity is …. wait for it …. 12%. YES !!! No more running the generator for some A/C or continually looking for a shady parking spot.
It’s lovely here in this valley town. I arrived about 2:30 and spent several hours in this large deserted Weber State University parking lot catching up on crossword puzzles and admiring the view.
So, on to my first NP site tomorrow – Promontory Point, Utah. Then Idaho.
