Earlier . . .
The crew and I leave our camp at Devil’s Canyon and motor northward on Route 191.
It’s already noon as we turn onto Route 133, the road that goes to Needles Overlook.
We pass several interesting rock formations.
After several miles we come to a fork in the road.
Seven miles later we arrive at the overlook!
It’s weird because one drives and drives across flat ground covered in sagebrush and then, all of a sudden, the earth opens up in a humongous canyon . . . and that’s an understatement.
I step outside and, man, is it hot! All around is red rock, red dirt, pavement, and concrete.
Here we are in the hottest part of the day . . . .
I set out a dish of water in the shade of the PTV and wait for Bridget and Reggie to have a drink. Reggie pulls on his tether.
“We aren’t going anywhere until you drink. So get to it.”
I squat and press my hand on the sidewalk.
Well, it’s hot, but it’s okay for paws . . .
I grab the bag containing our lunch and we search for the picnic area shown on a “You are here” map. The closest one is nice and shady, but it’s occupied.
(Most of my photos come out poorly. Too hazy,the subject too immense.)
Both Bridget and Reggie are panting. Bridget heads for the PTV and Reggie catches up with her.
She’s right. It’s too hot to sit out here for a picnic . . . .
“Good idea, Bridge.”
“We can have our picnic in the PTV. I don’t know about you guys, but I’m hungry! ”
Actually I do know about you guys. You’re always hungry for chicken.
“Here ya’ go.”
In between taking bites of my chicken sandwich and orange, I dole out chicken pieces to the crew. We have a nice, little picnic as evidenced by Bridget’s smile and bright eyes as she awaits the next morsel.
To be continued . . . .
NOTE: I didn’t intend this post to be broken into two parts. Photos are loading very slowly at our new camp and the crew is restless to go outside. I know what you’re thinking: They can’t go outside by themselves? No, they have to cling to me, especially during the first day or two at a new camp.
I’ll try to post Part 2 soon. In the meantime, feel free to discuss a range of topics. Among the previous post’s comments, the question was asked: “Is a Class C noisy inside when traveling?” If you have experience with a Class C, I invite your input.
I’ll award the honors in The Race To Be First and then turn it over to you. — Sue
