We met Terry’s family in Green River, Wyoming to begin our trip. We live close to the Utah border and they live close to the Wyoming border, meeting at Green River had us (both) driving 6 hours and a few minutes to the destination.
Our route went through Grand Junction and over Douglas Pass, to Rangely, Colorado then onto Green River, Wyoming. I DO NOT LIKE DRIVING DOUGLAS PASS!!! Pretty much straight up with lots and lots and lots (are you car sick yet) curves and straight down with lots and lots and lots (you are car sick now, I’m sure) plus the two-lane highway needs some tender loving care.
The colors were spectacular!
My photo doesn’t give them justice, but here is an idea.
We stayed in an Inn in Wild Horse Canyon, then the next day we drove through the Canyon and we saw a herd of wild horses, (which I thought was really cool).
Of course, you have to take my word for it that they were wild, they are wild.
We looked upon civilization
From the top of the canyon and even saw a train heading somewhere.
The start of the day was pretty cool. We will end the day in Jackson Hole.
P.S. Marie ,from My Little Corner of Rhode Island, is doing a daily 4 o’clock photo, which I thought was a good idea. I asked her if I could steal her idea and do my own 4 o’clock photo showing how the day is moving into the long nights of winter.
She said “SURE”! Actually, she said “steal away” so I did!
These my two 4 o’clock photos on October 9, 2012 in Delta, Colorado.
The shadows are thick but the sunlight still plentiful.
