Green River, Utah
I can’t explain why the scenery in Utah affects me so strongly!
Over the years, I’ve been drawn back to Utah every few years. I just can’t get enough of the dramatic and colorful bad lands. This trip I drove I 70 East into Green River. Just North of Goblin State Park and Arches, the views here are just as fantastic. There were numerous viewpoints – a good thing, because the views are spectacular. The highway is a bit winding and steep, and today, quite gusty – so I really had to focus on driving – quite the challenge with all the gorgeous scenery.
The best scenery day; the worst camera day
I pulled off at a viewpoint, grabbed my 200mm focus camera hoping to get some good landscape photos. I scrambled down the path to a good viewpoint – turned on the camera – nothing . . . . totally dead battery.
Yup, back up the trail so I can grab my smartphone and all these pics were taken with my Android. Tonight will be a major battery charging evening.
Tonight's campsite isn't fancy - but I like the neighbors!
Tonight I'm staying in an RV Park in Green River, UT - not fancy or scenic, but convenient to the highway, gas station, grocery and hookups for AC and charging up my cameras.
The added assets - several horses to pet and a neighbor that increases my sense of safety!
