Day 2 - Pendleton to Park City

After a long drive, golf, a great dinner and drinks we were in bed at 8:30pm but up early. The moon was big, round, and beautiful at 6am this morning, hanging low in the October sky above Pendleton.  We drove to La Grande; got lattes at the Dutch Cup drive-through and then over to the Smokehouse for 2 eggs, toast, hashbrowns.  30 minutes later we were on the road heading East.  Destination: Park City, Utah.  Baker City coming up. 

Not too far from Ontario, Lookout Mtn: tan hills, sprinkled here and there with bushes turning a feathery wine-red colour.  Quite lovely.  And let’s not forget the sage green of the sage brush; it’s everywhere. 

Today we tried reading to each other from Kafka's The Trial!  Book Judgement reading Club! This is a mild form of torture.  We have driven Seattle to Cheyenne via this route many times so are looking forward to the Cheyenne-Fort Worth.........Seattle portion.

We took a short detour to run around the Mormon Temple in downtown SLC.  Took lots of pictures whis you can see on the slide show!

Finally arrived at Bev's.  Bev is recovering from having an ankle fused so we ordered Chinese Take-out...Delish!!

Tomorrow across the Red Desert of south west Wyoming...this is beautiful country and I always look forward to it!
