Day 178 / Mile 21,875
Even though it was cold on those snowy mountain passes in Colorado, the little motor in the ol' van got way hot and almost blew up. Since she's underpowered and carrying my trucker bod it was nice to start descending down into Utah.
To avoid the busloads of tourists I went on an adventure away from the arches, more in the desolate wilderness to chill out.
I was planning on driving West from here, but then a friend from Salt Lake City called me with an invitation to go camping for the weekend. I wasn't planning on heading that far North, but hanging with friends and also taking a little break to catch up on photo edits ultimately had me saying yes.
