US 89

We spent a large portion of the day driving north on US Highway 89.  It was so unbelievably beautiful that I can’t begin to describe it.  I took a bunch of fly by pictures (from the motor home).  I don’t like the result when you do that but we can’t safely stop on the highway.  I think it is better than nothing.  I’ve selected a few pictures below, but they don’t begin to show how beautiful the route was.

Tomorrow we go adventuring from our base spot in Utah.  There are several National Parks and Monuments not to mention scenic byways and backways and state parks, etc.  You could probably spend a life time exploring here.   Our jeep will come in handy because there are numerous roads to travel that require 4-wheel drive.  They aren’t passable if it rains, so we will alter plans depending on the weather.

Next week, we will spend time in St. George getting repairs.  Originally, we only had to get our heater fixed.  Now, we have to get the windshield fixed.  We met with a rock today.  The damage is 44 mm x 35 mm or 1 3/8 inches x 1 3/4 inches.  Hmmmm.  It’s always something.

Windshield mishap on the motor home. Encounter with a rock.

The time zones out here are driving me crazy.  Arizona does not participate in daylight savings time so I have to really think about what time it is.  The phones are usually accurate but our other clocks that should automatically update, don’t always get it right.  Fortunately, we aren’t doing anything that requires us to be somewhere at a specific time.  So, if we don’t really know what time it is, who cares?

One last thing.  The wind is crazy.  Really crazy.  I guess not having trees is a significant contributor to the situation.  Every so often, we are ready to get to Oregon to get out of the wind.  It is REALLY HARD to play flying disk with Dart when the wind blows so hard.
