Monday June 7, 2010 Shady Acres to Great Basin NP

JoAnne Morgan

Whew a long, long slow day of travel! We left Shady Acres at 7:30 am and made a stop at the most interesting and beautiful site. It was called Outlaw Country right outside of Green River, UT. Factoid::In this area Butch Cassidy and the Wild Bunch eluded the lawmen that pursued them in the late 1800’s. In 1850 Chief Wakara escaped these badlands with 1,400 stolen horses.

You more than likely will be able to relate – you are cruising along and BAM!!! You are stuck driving behind an RV going up a hill and think you’ll lose your mind…yep…today we were the three RV’s driving you crazy!

Special Recognition goes to Miss Lois! She drove her rig! Extremely impressive – passing, going uphill, downhill and wind gusts – she did it!!! Wahoo!!!

So…After climbing, and going downhill, and climbing up some more, we arrived at Great Basin National Park. After a hard day of driving, we camped in the National Park, alongside a rushing river, in a wooded forest, and decided to do two nights of dry camping. JM
