You can run but you can't hide


If you live in the western United States of America you are probably aware of the impending storm blowing its way south today; wind gusts to 60 mph and rain/snow/cold spreading into our neck of the desert here in Utah. There's no place to run, no place to hide...I've checked. One would have to be an ass to complain after nearly three weeks of meteorlogical ne plus ultra

As predawn yellow turns to pink beyond the distant La Salle Mountains silhouette, we've decided to break our boondock, pack up, and make this a travel day. So if you see a wind-tilted Lazy Daze fighting to stay in its lane across central Utah, that would be us. Pass at your own risk! 

Below is our mountain bike excursion into Archs National Park via the old entrance. See ya down the road!

  1. The wind started last night at our boondock site on Lake Mead near Valley of Fire. Didn't get much sleep!
    Hope you can convince Boonie to hang out so we can visit with him this weekend. Drive safely!

    I love that back entrance to Arches....entered that way several time to explore the Towers Arch area! Such wonderful days and memories!

  4. You guys make us want to look into buying mountain bikes again. The only problem is that I don't like the way they look hanging off the back of the rig as we go down the road!

  5. The two black and whites toward the bottom are first class. Did you photoshop those at all? In the bottom one, it's like the parting of the clouds so you can see God. I'm not kidding.

  6. Travel safe. We have blue skies over here in Glenwood Springs this morning, but it's supposed to hit this evening, then in force the next couople of days (snow). Your pictures make me homesick, but I hope to be back over there in a couple of weeks. Will be curious to see where you all end up this time. :)

  8. I'd rather not travel during high wind. Glad I'm safely parked here in windy Yarnell at the top of the hill. Besides, where you were looks mighty nice.
