Welcome, also, to Hobo Joe, who has come off the road for a while to help his sister in Hawaii do some remodeling. Not a bad place to help out the family! Joe does some , "Hillbilly philosophizin', or somethin' like that" on his blog. Welcome aboard, Hobo Joe, happy to have you along, too!
We hung around this morning until after noon, then drove into town to get our mail at the post office. I went through all the mail, organized and dealt with stuff, etc. and then we headed out around 1:30, I think.
We had a nice, uneventful drive down Highway 84 and crossed the border of Idaho and Utah. Nice roads up here in the Idaho/Utah area. The views out the window were beautiful all the way. Lots of great cloud formations, some large mountains with snow on the top and sides, a little rain. Utah's landscapes are a little different than Idaho's in this northern part of the state. They still have vast fields and lots of mountains surrounding them, but the mountains in Idaho that we saw seemed smoother and flatter. The Utah mountains are tall and craggy, and snow capped.
We ended up a little way into Utah at Tremonton, where I stopped for gas and had dinner at a Denny's. I seldom eat out, but I hadn't had anything good all day, and wanted to have something nutritious before we stopped at the WalMart in Perry, UT for the night. I really like Denny's - and they have a 20 percent discount if you show your AARP card. Nice. I had Talapia, spinach, coleslaw, side salad and toasted bread for less than $10. It was really good, AND I brought the bread and coleslaw back to The Palms for tomorrow.
No special plans for tomorrow. We'll drive through Salt Lake City and continue down Highway 15 toward Las Vegas. If I see a good campground, we'll stop. I want to visit Brice and/or Zion when we get to that area, too. I'm told they are both beautiful parks and worth a visit, and there are lots of RV sites in both parks. I'd like to stay for a few weeks in Utah if the weather is good.
Katie actually ate some dinner tonight, which she usually doesn't do after a travel day, so hopefully she will not be sick tonight or tomorrow. She's been sleeping in the bunk with me because of the cold at the last park, but tonight she's going back on the couch to sleep on her favorite pillow. I put that light, down blanket over her when I got to bed, and she's snug as a bug until morning. Unless she gets up. :)
From Me and My Dog, have a good Tuesday evening, everyone! : )
