Last Night (UT)

Last night on this 5th leg of my journey. In Orem, UT. Orem is about 45 miles south of Salt Lake City and just north of Provo. We arrived at a very pretty time of the evening – golden sun on the Wasatch to the east and Utah Lake to the west.

Today we played in Wendover and at the Bonneville Salt Flats. Salt is still caked to my wheel wells from our visit to and drive on the Flats. How cool.

A photo of my evening domicile. Pleasant, comfortable, and inviting.

Not In The NW Anymore (NV)

Phew! That was a longgggg drive from Bend, OR to Winnemucca, NV. And not much to see except that that was the neat thing – lots to not see in the high desert! Miles and miles of it. Cattle, horses, antelope, alpacas. And a few people. And lots of wide-open no-fences BLM land. And Indian reservations.

Speed limit was 55 in OR and the same two lane highway in NV had a speed limit of 70! Hehe…

Anyway, we are here in Winnemucca. I think we are getting tired. But only two more drive days. We’ll make it!

Yellow (OR)

Not sure what Bend, OR is noted for but I think the yellow flowers should be considered of some significance. Dazzling.

Preparation (OR)

Beautiful. This is the launch prep site for the kiteboarders. The windsurfers launch a bit further down. This looks so free and happy.
