Well not really, but this was what my father use to always say sarcastically on Road Trips cause with 3 kids and a dog our progress was considerably slower!
Anyway we hoped on the I- 80 and away we drove. It did not even occur to me to get out my camera until lunch time in, Winemucca, NE, 'cause the CA. terrain was so familiar. But the 'Georgia O'keef' sky and 'rock formations inspired me to take some pix
We ended our first day of driving, having crossed the width of CA and NE in the little border town of Wendover Utah. I would show you a pic but there's not much there but some casinos on the NE side.
Next day crossing the Salt Flats West of Salt Lake City. I think the Salt Flats create a kind of primatic effect to create the illustion that the mountains appear to float above the plain. Very cool!
Mountains just East of Salt Lake City. Spring has Sprung!
But there is still alot of Snow in the Mountains a little more East across the border in Wyoming.
We took a little detour to the Flaming Gorge Reservoir. Altitude 6100 Ft. The gorge is fed by the Green River. We passed through the cute little town of Green River where I spied a Quilt Store but I could not cajole DH into stopping!
How do trees manage to grow like that!!!
DH really delights in trying to scare the #&*%& out of me!
Spring was very much in evidence at this higher altitude!
And of course I have to include a picture of the Dam
There were lots of Factoids on a sign at this vista but the only one I remember is that the Dam took 7 Million Cubic Yards of concrete to build!
Next stop somewhere in Nebraska!
