The Road Less Traveled
September 1, 2014
I hope everyone is off work & enjoying a much needed day of play or rest. I certainly am!
I've missed you all very much, and plan to start posting again. Our 10 day vacation was glorious, and we saw some stunning country on our explorations from Salt Lake City to Phoenix. As many of you know, Bill and I like to explore the small highways, and back roads (yes, many are dirt or gravel) and we avoid major Interstates as much as possible.
On our first day, we left Salt Lake City and headed out to the east to our first night near Altamont, Utah. I had plotted a backroad's trip for us and about half way there, one of the roads that I'd planned for us to take (Ute 7) was dirt (no problem), but it was on the reservation. We encountered this sign and were a bit disappointed because to back track would have put us hours past our appointed time to arrive at the LC Ranch cabin near Altamont. So we took a deep breath, and hauled it through the reservation on the dirt road. Thankfully, we didn't meet another car, nor run into any issues. It was a beautiful drive through the Unitah & Ouray Indian reservation.

Have a great day my friends!
