Days 392 & 393
We are worn out from that 13 mile hike. We did drive around (and climb around) the viewpoints in Canyonlands National Park. Then, we saw a dirt road to drive while at the viewpoint near the visitor center. We asked the visitor center people and they said it brings you back to Moab on Potash Road.
So we did it. Took a bit over the hours but the views back there were incredible. It's definitely 4x4 and high clearance travel... there were some very sketchy spots as far as the bumpiness of the road goes but I just took it slow.
I was so tired before we hit that dirt road... then once on it, I was wide awake and in my element. The more technical it got, the more fun I had. I love 4-wheeling!
One day we will get a RZR or something to really enjoy these roads (and not add unnecessary miles or wear and tear on the truck).
I highly recommend this road if you have the right vehicle! It was a blast. Then, once we got back into Moab, we stopped for dinner. We were thinking Mexican food so we went to the first dine in place we found, Fiesta Mexicana.
This, I do not recommend. The food was sub par, at best. The margaritas were the only good thing. We paid more here, for less food - and MUCH worse food - than we did at the Brewery. So, skip this restaurant for sure!
Day 393 had us back on the road. Jordan washed the truck and RV at the wash near our spot at Shady Acres RV Park. If you're in Green River, this is a great little park.
Now we're in one of my favorite places on the US. The San Juan Mountains. It's been 3 years since I was here last... so much has changed. Including a fire that took out half the block of shops in Silverton. Thankfully no one was injured.
The aspen trees are bright with color, the air is crisp. We're off to hike a bit. This is such a wonderful journey. I'm so happy to have someone who loves me to share it with!
BTW... if you're in this area in October. Set up base camp in Ouray. There's lots to do... and the pizza at the Mineshaft is delicious!
I had a dream that I was traveling all over the world. In less than 6 months, I sold almost everything I own...bought a Toy Hauler (the "garage" is my art studio) and am now living wherever, whenever...just me, my art, and my cats.
