We slept a little later this morning (6:15 AM Central) and took our time getting going (8:45 AM Central). Here we are ready to begin another day:
Then we drove to Grand Junction to have the truck checked, after the long mountain experiences of Colorado and before the Mojave Desert. The people at U-Haul were extremely helpful; one checked the oil, water, brakes, and replaced windshield wipers and filled the washer fluid. Then another checked the air in all tires—three of the four on the trailer were slightly low (not dangerous). All in all, a very good stop. We both felt much more comfortable starting this part of the trip.
What can we say about Utah? It is beautiful, long, and desolate. We stopped at a rest area (yep, those are needed on long trips!), and I snapped these two shots.
Tomorrow, an early morning. We will leave about 4 AM to beat the heat of the Mojave Desert. We look to be in Frazier Park by 1 PM (Pacific time). Yay!!!
