Running from Winter

The plan is to spend a few relaxing days after our last volunteer work day on Labor Day weekend leisurely preparing to move on.  Mother Nature has other plans.  She rudely reminds us that summer in Laramie ends a day or two after Labor Day.  Snow predictions warn of an eagerly  approaching winter.  With snow and temps in the low 20s headed for Laramie, we scramble to bug out before we are frozen in place.

At the beginning of Moonshine Arch trail in the middle of nowhere. The only likely congregation of folks here would all be lost as this arch is tricky to find!

This Is Vernal

I envision a restful, work-free week in Vernal, Utah ( Slogan: “This Is Vernal” – I am not making that up!).  Matt, Sherry and I plan to explore the Dinosaur sights/sites and colorful area canyon views.  Our first two days in this compact, but well appointed little town are spent touring inside places like museums where we can be warm.  We also huddle in our RVs while the wintry, 50 mph plus winds rain a storm of branches and leaves down on our rigs.  I for one do not want to be killed by amputated woody appendages falling from above. 

Our first foray back toward Flaming Gorge lands us smack in the middle of a whiteout snowstorm.  Eventually the weather does calm down and we are able to explore.  Because I am packing to move on to the next adventure, these photos will tell the story of our sight-seeing treks around through Flaming Gorge and among the Dinosaurs.

    1. Yes – it is a little tricky maneuvering between fires and cold weather. The smoke is hard to deal with too – messing up my scenic pictures!
