Memorial Day, May 27 (south-central Utah)
The crew and I travel westward on Highway 24 through Bicknell and Lyman. Here are some of the scenes along the way.
The towns are so small in this valley that livestock live right in the towns as well as in the surrounding fields. Just past Fremont we join a small cattle drive.
Fortunately Spike is snoozing and unaware of the bawling bovines ahead of us.
The cattle drive leaves the road and we continue another ten to fifteen miles.
Lovely Meadow Mill Reservoir comes into view.
The crew and I wander along the shoreline. The National Forest Service allows camping here (vault toilets — no internet!).
And then . . .
Bridget gets close to the water. However, she would rather sit and watch.
I’m grateful for a peaceful Memorial Day made possible through the sacrifice of many.
We take the Fremont River Road and go over the Fremont River across a one-lane bridge.
We cross the valley again and soon the glowing rocks welcome us home!
