On the Road...

The weather outside was gloomy as we started south. We had winds that reached 80 km an hour at times. These winds continued for most of the day.... 

By the end of the day the weather looked promising. The final part of the day was along a back road through small towns.  Twin Bridges Montana looks like a great little town to explore. It was to late for us to stop this time. We stayed in Dillon Mt. T Many great old houses! We stayed in our RV. In the morning it was -7 F. (LK you can do the conversion into celsius !)

The next morning....the weather looked promising although we had our winter spots.
Know matter how many times we make this trip, we never tire of it. We enjoy the different seasons and the beauty never stops to amaze us. Above is the Salt Lake in winter.
Utah...through the Salt Lake area...we usually have bumper to bumper traffic...but this being Sunday...we could actually see the road!
 Temperatures in Utah were around 32F which if you don’t know is 0 C. A Winter Storm had gone thru the day before we arrived. 
This storm was still happening to the south of us....but by the time we arrived.....the sun was out and we just saw the results of it. Well ...they may have snow...but the temperature only 32F....not like at home! 
One hour from the snow...we were in the desert....and stopped for the night. We will see what tomorrow brings.


  1. It's so hard not to be jealous. (My parents always taught me not to want what others have....but this is super hard:)) Especially that a storm is blowing through here and temperatures are supposed to drop drastically by tonight.
    I hope you enjoy every speck of warmth...and try to bring it back if you ever even want to come back here:)))
    Nice pictures of Utah!
