Hello Panguitch Lake, farewell Panguitch Lake. After allowing ourselves a little later start, we pulled out of Panguitch and headed for Flaming Gorge in northern Utah. Shortly after leaving, traveling along a winding mountain road, we experienced another kind of thrill that got our adrenaline going. Just around a blind curve stood a construction lady holding a stop sign due to construction just ahead. Quick reflexes Greg! He slammed on the brakes and we narrowly missed hitting the nice lady. All of the loose contents in the RV cabin went flying, but thankfully no big casualties, except for a bottle of Chianti. When Greg tried to tell the worker the dangerous place she was standing, she agreed, but wouldn’t budge from her position. Don’t say we didn’t warn you!
If the dogs weren’t nervous before, that really shook them up. Of course, Daisy took it in stride, and Bella wanted to crawl into someone’s womb. Poor Bella. This trip has really been unnerving for her. Like her mommy (that’s me) she really does like the comforts of home, especially her yard. The poor thing refuses to “do her business” on the road. She can “hold it” for 24 hours at a time…if there’s no grassy area, that’s literally a “no go” for Bella.
Other than that, the rest of the day was just a beautiful drive through the Utah mountains. Greg especially loved seeing the Aspen tree lined mountain tops as we made our way north. Beautiful countryside. Once again, we found ourselves traveling at dusk, when the deer come out of hiding. Today we saw a buck, with his velvety horns. Magnificent! He was accompanied by two does. Greg reminded me that in Utah, polygamy is more accepted 🙂
At the end of our long day on the road (thank God for books on tape…we’re almost done with “Unbroken”), we arrived at Flaming Gorge. A little dinner, a shower and to bed we go! Tomorrow is fly fishing! (weeeee!) That’s a bucket list item for Sandy…just want to try it once! Until tomorrow….
