Travels through Salt Lake City, Green River & Cheyenne Wyoming.
04.06.2013 - 04.13.2013
As our daughter Loretta and her boyfriend Jeremy had moved from San Francisco to Chicago last summer it was inevitable that we would make a trip out to see them. Having traveled in the fall as far as Madison, South Dakota we are traveling through some familiar areas again but this time in early spring. (When we left Roseville, CA the temps were in the 70s!)
Salt Lake City, Utah
Sharon with Irene Polidor, Brad's aunt
Uncle Skip & Kurt Young
We had fine weather until the night before we left and then the big storm hit. We followed the storm far enough back that the roads were clear but we traveled through a winter wonderland.
The mountains around Salt Lake after the storm.
We drove by Brad's beloved departed Grandpa Joe's house on St. Mary's Way. Many were the happy times we spent in the house that Grandpa built overlooking the city.
This is of Brad's old apartment from the days when he went to the University of Utah.
In order of appearance; Salt Lake's City Hall, the Capitol, the Temple and the angel Meroni
Ensign Peak overlooking Salt Lake
The Coachman restaurant, Grandpa's favorite eatery for liver & onions.
Finally made our way out of town. Park City's beautiful mountains; just days before people were golfing in shorts!
Headed for Green River, Wyoming where it was a balmy 17 degrees and 30 kts of wind.
The Green River as we headed out for Cheyenne.
Elk Mountain pass elevation around 8000'. Elk Mountain - 11,156' obscured by clouds.
Cheyenne got around a foot and half of snow from the storm. In order of appearance; downtown and the Capitol building, our rig in the snow.
On our way to Rapid City, SD and the National Tattoo Convention, staying at Hart Ranch.
Cool cowboy silhouette.
We're keeping any eye on the weather and plan to be in Chicago by the first week of May.
