Vermillion cliffs

Four corners

Winter is coming

I'm slow. I'm more interested in fuel efficiency and staying alive than in speed.

I do pass someone from time to time. Like the local farmer poking along in a pickup stuffed with hay bales.

I navigate with paper maps, except in cities. Then I use good old Google Maps for ease of navigation.

I liaten to local radio if its Classical (extremely rare) or classic rock (less rare). I have a bunch of CDs but don't mind the steady drone of the engine.

I almost drove to Cedar City to take in a play at its Shakespeare festival. Plenty of tickets available day of show. I write plays, I'm supposed to see shows. Then I saw the sign for Cedar Breaks. I had to see the Breaks.

Then only problem after steep grades and narrow lanes was the weather. It was snowing. I was disappointed not to hike a little but the slushy snow turned the trails to mush.

At Grand Canyon, I did not see the famous white tailed chipmunk. My coffee at the Park general store was $3.69 for a medium to go.

The Ute Mountain casino did not have a craps table.

The Cortez High football team was playing an away game.

Aneth Lodge is far more tattered than online reviews suggested.

But I'm safe, fed, and not driving on the left.
