Heber, Utah

Monday evening we had a wonderful time catching up with my nephew, Tom, and his family for dinner in Meridian, ID. Unfortunately I was so caught up in conversation that I forgot to take pictures. But it was great to see them again after 20 years.

Tues. morning we were on the road at 6am to get through Boise before their rush hour traffic and we were glad we got an early start because it was already heavy traffic at that hour due to construction. But had a easy 409 mile trip to Heber, UT, which is about 30 miles east of Salt Lake City. We're at the Mountain Valley RV Resort, which is an excellent, fairly new park that is surrounded by mountains. There isn't much to do around here so after setting up ran into town to a fruit stand and bought some corn and a watermelon. Both turned out to be great.

This morning after our chores (wash windshield, laundry and house cleaning) we drove to Park City about 20 miles northwest. This is a ski resort that has an historical downtown, of course with all the touristy shops and restaurants. The elevation there is over 7000 feet. The day is overcast and off and on raining but not cold, in the mid 60s.

During our window shopping, I found Jim's Christmas present!
After window shopping and going through some art galleries we needed nourishment, so went to the No Name Saloon.
We had their Saloon Buffalo Burger and Fish & Chips, which were both good and more to eat than what we needed.
After lunch it is still raining, so unable to go anywhere to do any hiking or any outside activity, so went to the overlook of the Jordanelle Reservoir which is close by.
Some of the hillsides are displaying color already. With the overcast this picture just doesn't do it justice, but it is pretty.

Tomorrow we will be on the road by 6am again to head home with an overnight stop in Kingman which is over 500 miles from here, then only 300 more miles to Tucson. So this is basically the end of our 3 week trip, which I hope you have enjoyed coming along with us through this blog. We surely enjoyed ourselves and saw a lot of new country, tasted plenty of wine, did some hiking, saw waterfalls, geysers, bison and many beautiful sights. Ate buffalo, enjoyed a stop over to visit family, put a "few" miles on the Lincoln and by the time we are back in Tucson we will have traveled 4,330 miles in the motorhome. So the RV will go back in the barn for a few months before we take off again, probably towards Indio in time for Thanksgiving.
