Left the country around Moab yesterday morning figuring to go maybe 150 miles... well uh... went maybe a hundred farther... deciding I wanted to get through Salt Lake... fact is... there just ain't much in that stretch to hold even, my, attention...
I gotta say... that country of central Utah is... Dry. It's a tough land out there... and this is comin' from a kid raised on the desert... and feelin' at home in the desert... but, that part of the west is... well... let's just say that when even the chiggers are skinny... It's Hard Country!
So... we rolled on a bit farther and for all the hard core's out there... actually spent our first free night, courtesy of Walmart! ;o) ... 'course, just like Wally World figures... it wadn't free... left a few dollars in the till.
For the next few days we're gonna work our way toward Pendleton and the Columbia River... We've tinkered with the idea of farther North... maybe as far as Port Angeles. Really tempting the weather gods... but... I think it's more likely we'll follow down along the Columbia to the coast...
Even there, we have to make a decision... North side, in Washington?... or South side in Oregon? Sheesh! Why can't it just be easy?
Anyhoo... it's still Northwest for a lil' bit... at least the next couple of days... and maybe, with a lil' luck, we'll get back into a lil' more photogenic geography.
