A few of my favorites…
This chapter starts in Dinosaur National Monument… and actually took us from Utah, to Colorado, back to Utah — and then in to Colorado again (Day 3). After swinging through Steamboat and camping at Summit Lake (Day 4), we repeated that nonsense by going from Colorado, to Wyoming and then back to Colorado (Day 5)… only to go back to Wyoming and finish out the drive to Missouri on I-80 (Day 6).
They say you never get a second chance to make a first impression, but what most people do is make no impression at all.
Day 15 threw the agenda out the window and instead packed in a lot of driving, a bunch of epic scenery, and some good eats. Did I mention a lot of driving?
We went from Nevada to Mono Lake. Then to Mammoth by way the “lake loop” and out to the Devil’s Pitch Pile. Then back to Mammoth and into Bishop for some grub at Burger Barn. And finally, from Bishop to home along the 395. We got in bed that night around midnight. But worth it.
*Next up will be the video… but it’s going to take awhile. We had six people shooting this trip.
Today got a mixed response from the group on beauty… but it was eventful nonetheless. The drive took us from Sun Valley close to the California border through Nevada and along Hwy 50 (“loneliest highway in America”). In route we came across Middlegate and stopped there for some steaks and beers before finding camp that night in the dark.
Today was the only “no travel” day of the trip. We spent it relaxing, four-wheeling, hiking and fishing. It was awesome.
