We have now traveled into our eighth state! We bid the Ruskins and Bella a fond farewell this morning, and headed back towards Golden, the only backtracking we have done on this trip. From Golden, we turned west towards home. The road over the Rockies was beautiful, with varied scenery. We saw active ski areas, impressive rock walls reaching high above us, and many mining towns. We were at over 11,000 feet at the highest pass! One of the 6% downhill grades lasted for over six miles, and there were many warning signs for truckers and many runaway truck ramps along the highway. We stopped to climb Dinosaur Hill, where an almost intact Brontosaurus was found in 1901. Elmer Samuel Riggs (1869-1963) was a paleontologist who worked for the Field Museum in Chicago. In this area, ... read more

So how much water is in the Colorado River anyway ? I made a special visit to Riverside Park in Grand Junction to find out. Unfamiliar with before and after or how to measure flow, it seemed pretty much up to normal levels (below the addition of the Gunnison, of course). I decided to look at the Green River too, to see if I could see anything with my un-practiced eye. That also meant I could visit the John Wesley Powell museum at Green River -- a plus -- but would have to face I-15 traffic going North through Provo and Salt Lake City. Big negative -- but this is what I ended up doing. The Green River also had a 'normal' amount of water. The town is where the 1869 Expedition to run the Colorado ... read more

After checkout, We were headed to Pahrump, NV to have breakfast with our friends John and Jennifer Trunk. It was a nice leisurely breakfast as none of us had a long travel day in front of us. We still can’t get over that we ended up in the same place at the same time so many miles from home. We headed to Kanab and as we entered Utah we found a visitors center. So we got off the Interstate and pulled In the parking lot. A car pulled along side of us and the people were waving. We Got out and heard “Let’s Go Mountaineers!” The young man was a 1999 graduate of WVU and saw our WV plate and followed us just to Cheer on a fellow mountaineer! After he and his wife left, Ed ... read more

We had a very long drive yesterday. We enjoyed our drive through Yellowstone on the way out, and our drive through the southern part of Idaho was also gorgeous. Once we crossed into Utah, the scenery started to change from forested mountains to arid landscape. It got very hot. Surprisingly, the highways were extremely busy in Utah as well. There were many cars on the road with a high speed limit (80 mph). It felt a little dangerous driving through the state (especially through Salt Lake City), but we eventually made it to southern Utah and the town of Moab. It was evening, and the KOA office was closed. Thankfully, they had our keys waiting for us, so we were able to get to our cabin no problem. We also grabbed Paul & Colleen's key. They're ... read more
