…well into the second 5 year mission!

What a difference (2) days make

Over Labor Day weekend, I hung out in the Uinta Mountains northeast of Salt Lake City.  My campsite was at 8300 ‘ and the trailheads were all above 10,000 feet.  Just call me H. R. Huff n Puff…

I left there, slept in Price, UT, then drove a bit out of the way, going to Natural Bridges National Monument.  My route took me southeast, onto 95, to the northern tip of Lake Powell.  Shortly after leaving I-70, the scenery started.

Colorful rock formations bordered my descent.

Finally, at the Lake Powell beginnings, the rocks were a fairly uniform rust color.
