It has been a couple of days since posting so there are a lot of photos to upload.
Hopefully, the photos will tell the story. I wasn’t sure which way to head and set off in a sort of SE direction. The Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest was as steep as I expected. I did not, however, expect to be snowed on! It was bleak day and I had wrapped up well – in the end, too well as I began a meltdown at one point and had to sit and rest as I thought I might be having a heart attack. I guess the altitude was part of the reason for that. I had gone up around 8,000 feet.
Here’s the photos of the trip with explanations where necessary.
First – a car for Christine. She loves these old things.
Not sure what was going on here.
But packed and ready for off
Now we’re climbing
You can’t see it on the photos, but it was snowing up there!
I had to take some of my many layers off to cool down – and then I began to descend from the mountains anyhow.
It was getting late when I pulled into Heber City. I asked the gas station attendant about motels in town. She told me the people who owned the Swiss Alps were very nice people, so that motel was probably good. But she warned me not to go to the motels on the other side of town.
Time for a beer and some solid fuel. The diner opposite the motel belonged to the same people.
This was a couple from New Zealand who were here ‘chasing horses’
A very unusual toilet
Tomorrow, I go east and end up in Colorado again
