That night after Liz left, I stayed in a campground in Idaho, which was just over the border from Wyoming. It was about $100 for a campground near Jackson, but this one was only about $40 and it was on the way to where I was going, so I drove for two hours to get there. I was rewarded with this beautiful moon over Idaho, in addition to the kindly gentleman Jim who worked there and emptied my cassette toilet for me! If only I could remember to take all my pictures in landscape layout none of them would show up sideways!
This is the Bear Lake area. It was absolutely stunning! I kept stopping to take pictures (not just taking them while I was driving!).
Can you believe this?! Covered wagons!! It got me to thinking about how much that would have SUCKED to ride across that continent in one of those things!! Riding across the country in a camper van, or a pickup camper (with all their modern conveniences) is no easy feat, so I can't imagine what that was like!!
I could not get over the stunning contrast in colors, especially the incredible yellow! It even takes my breath away looking at them as tiny photos now, and this is nothing compared to the beauty in person, when the landscape is stretched out forever in front of you!
Since I was driving right by Logan, UT I decided to stop by the campus of Utah State University where my friend Heather works to see her (she was mentioned earlier when we connected for about 20 minutes on my way to Utah). I was stunned by the beauty of the campus! I ate lunch on this lawn and watched a woman playing ball with her two dogs. It was heavenly.
I forgot to take a picture of Heather again this time! We chatted for about an hour, and she showed me around her office and introduced me to her staff. It was really nice to see her, she is a very kind soul.
I stayed the night at the KOA in Provo, which is where Brigham Young University is. Here are a couple of pictures from there, one of the view from my site, one of the town, and the last one is a cool piece of wood that decorated the foyer in the restaurant where I ate dinner that night.
