The Lonliest Road in America

Thursday
417 miles. 10 hours. It's been a day!
ok... so maybe we stopped along the way to take a photo or two... but still a long day. We left Moab in the  morning and took Hwy 128 along the Colorado River. A very scenic drive. 
Got on 70/50 and drove thru pretty much most of Utah. Stopped in Ely, Nevada for the night.
Here are some photos of the day.
tsk wanted to be the driver this time
The ridge in the distance is where we rode our mountain bikes!

As we were heading down the highway we could see this fire billowing. Sacry! The road turned before it and we then headed away from it.
We made it to Ely, safe and sound.
Friday (today)
We left Ely early, as we were still travelling on the loneliest road and had about 324 miles to do to get home. Temps were actually cool and pleasant for a change.
There are a few towns along the way but they seem to be lost in time.
Much of the day was this. Over and down a mtn pass then a long flat valley, to do it again, and again.
TSK had his first grocery store trip!
Welcome to California!
Heading up the road to home... he knows!
And now we are home safe and sound. We had allot of fun in Salt Lake City at Blogpaws meeting everyone and also in Moab getting some good rides in. We are disapointed we didn't get to Colorado due to the fires but plan on trying to go again when things are better and cooler there.
Not sure what our next meandering will be, but you'll be the first to hear about it here!

  2. Mario's mom - No wonder TSK loves riding in his carrier - he can see out on all sides. I for sure made a mistake a long time ago in getting the hard sided one. If I were traveling again, I'd get one of those. Great pictures - very scenic and gorgeous! Almost like paintings. Thanks for taking us on the trip with you.
