We headed south through Salt Lake City on October 1. As I mentioned in a previous post, we stopped at Timpanogos Harley Davidson. We had noticed this building when we passed through in the spring but we didn’t have time to stop. It was a fun experience and highlight for that day for sure.
Once we were out of the never-ending Salt Lake City area we took a road off of the main interstate and then joined up to I-70 and went east. All along this highway there are viewpoints to pull off and enjoy the scenery. I guess it could be seen as barren but it is also very beautiful. The rock varies in colour from white to deep reds. This area is one of my favorite places in our travels.
Many of the viewpoints in southern USA have native Americans selling jewelry and pottery. It is always interesting to check out what they are selling.
When we arrived in Green River, it was melon season. We stopped at a road side stand to pick out 3 to try. One was good old cantaloupe and the others were israeli and canary. They were all very good but that cantaloupe was the best I have every eaten. I guess people come from far and wide to pick up Green River melons so it was fun that we arrived at that time.
Green River was our home base for a few days so the next couple of post will be from that area.
