I think before we go back to the coast, we’ll spend a day – or parts of a couple days at least – in Utah. When I did my road trip to New Mexico in March, the plan for the trip home was to spend a couple of nights and a whole day in Utah so I could do some touring of the national parks there. But, as so often happens to me when I’ve been gone from home for awhile, delays in getting there just don’t work out for me. So I got to Utah, taking a few photos as I drove, then decided to spend one night rather than two and head on home. The photos below are what I got that I deemed worth sharing.
Looking up Newspaper Rock on the internet, I don’t think I found the area where the Petroglyphs are at all. But Shasta and I had a nice walk, and now I can say I was there, with photos to prove it. I headed on to the motel I had reserved for the night – for two nights, actually, but I changed that to one night.
Continuing on, watching the road, my mind in neutral, the terrain turned white and I thought “hmmm, white sand? Maybe salt flats?” Remember, I said my mind was in neutral. Then I saw a sign that said “Bonneville” and my mind woke up, clicked and said, “Duh! Of course stoopy, you’ve seen commercials filmed in the Bonneville Salt Flats. Where did you think they were?” Yep. Duh. It goes like that sometimes.
So that was Utah for me. Maybe someday a trip just to tour the national parks. Maybe. Someday.
