Thursday August 16, 2017 Colorado and Utah
Colorado to Utah driving North
Marty and Patty were slow getting it going this morning, but that was ok. We don’t have be anywhere and we don’t have a schedule and we are retired. That’s all we need.
We got on the road just before 11 and headed north on highway 141 on this road.
We spent quite a bit of time travelling north on that road through some nice country.
We continued on switching to some other roads that go north through this valley.
We pulled over here for lunch and a break.
Driving into Utah
Somewhere along the way we entered Utah and continued along this nice road.
We’re not use to traffic
Most of these roads had low traffic which was just fine with us as we’ve been in the back country a lot and aren’t used to lots of people right now.
We had a little rain along the way, but not enough to wash the vans off.
Highway 191 North
We climbed up in altitude a bit and went through this area of quaking aspens. I think we are on highway 191 north here.
Looking for a camp spot
We were now on highway 44 and travelling along.
Marty started to look for a camp spot in this area, but found it to be too high, about 8, 800 feet, so we travelled on until we dropped a couple thousand feet.
Flaming Gorge Reservoir
Here we are dropping fast down to the Flaming Gorge Reservoir where we hope to find a camp spot.
The first road we took to look for a camp spot was too controlled, so we drove a bit further to this spot on the reservoir.
Looks like a nice camp spot with low bugs, almost none so far.
This is our view of the reservoir from our camp spot.
Looks like a nice spot for a camp.

I’m headed over to the Jarbidge area to cross over Nevada to Oregon.
