On Friday, May 19th, we left Las Vegas and headed towards Utah. From 105 degrees to less than 60 degree temperatures with snow in the mountains. Pretty, but hard to take after Vegas!
of great scenery, with a combination of desert and
high altitude mountains. The highest pass that we
have traveled so far in Utah has been 7160 feet!
There are just a couple of pictures to show for our
travels through Utah, however there are many great
camping and outdoor activities to enjoy in this part
of the US.
San Rafael cliffs are a particularly imposing range
and these pictures really do not do justice to the
area. We are traveling on I70 which was built in
1957 at a huge cost due to the work needed to get
through this mountain range. You can see the highway

Rock was named by cowboys herding cattle in the desert
during heavy fog. All they could see was this rock,
which appeared out of the fog like a ghost, and this
is how it got its name! There are thousands of places
to stop such as these, however we only stopped at
these two locations.
Friday night we stayed in a small town called the Green River, which surprisingly is on the banks of the Green River. There is maybe a 1000 people here in the middle of the mountains and the desert. A place to sleep and then move on. Tomorrow we will travel through Colorado.
