Where I venture

I need to do more of these for you all. It was taken with my phone. I was feeling a bit queasy but happy to be out in this other worldly location. The salt was sticky due to moisture--not good for land speed records on this day. I don't like to say much other than what I need to. The scenery speaks for itself.

About this time last year I was down in Escalante and Capitol Reef, Utah. If you can remember my video clip of the flooding that was going on in Capitol Reef you will kind of get my no-frills presentation.

After this clip my party and I headed over the border from Utah to Wendover, Nevada. Why? To say "hi" to Wendover Will, the cowboy. It had nothing to do with craps, blackjack, or loose slots.

One thing that amused the hell out of me was a sign out in the middle of nowhere that had an arrow pointing West with the words "Meat Goats" on it. Curiously, it made me hungry.

Anyway, that is what I did today. Fun, eh?

BTW, if you couldn't understand what I said, this is what it was, "Somewhere out on the Bonneville Salt Flats."

Scary~ Streamlined is a good way of putting it.

The salt flats are incredible looking. I've never been there. I love blog traveling.

I am trying to decide if I want to watch the video, it might hurt the magic of the voice. I'm queer like that, but in the non controversial way

The Grunt said...

Ebezp~ It was good to be out and about. I wasn't doing too great that day but that trip perked me up.

Corn Dog~ They are incredible. It is amazing when you are there in person to get a sense of scale. The place is so big.

Chandra~ Aw, go on! Watch it!!!
