The adventure continues and we’re creeping slowly closer to Alaska (and bear country!) We’ve been on the road almost 6 weeks already! Hard to believe. Even harder to believe I’ve actually camped that long. Wasn’t sure I could do it! I do need a pedicure desperately…and I’m about to start chopping my own bangs…
But I LOVE waking up every morning wondering what the day will bring. Sure beats sitting in a cubicle beating my head against a wall. Especially when Martin whips up an egg/bacon/hashbrown tortilla scramble like this morning. YUM!
I feel like we conquered Utah. We’ve been EVERYWHERE – Zion, Bryce, Capitol Reef, Natural Bridges National Monument, Canyonlands, Moab, Arches, Monument Valley, Goblin Valley, Little Wild Horse Canyon, Park City, Dinosaur NM.
I was worried that by the last park, I’d feel like Chevy Chase in “Vacation” when he got to the Grand Canyon thinking “big deal – another rock, let’s go!”, but I continue to be amazed and enthralled by the color and formations of the canyons, mountains, and craters here. I don’t think that could ever get old.
Last stop in Utah tomorrow is Flaming Gorge and then it’s hello, Wyoming! I’m excited to see the Tetons again – one of my all-time favorite sights. I’m sure the bears will love Martin’s bacon too! (yikes)
My new obsessions:
- Slot Canyons (favorites: Antelope Canyon, Canyonlands – The Needles, Little Wild Horse Canyon)
- Everything “collapse-able” (best invention – my whole kitchen will be collapsing dishes when I get home!)
- Coffee drip – $5 and it seriously tastes better than a pot-brewed coffee!
