Okay, where were we? After State Forest State Park we drove clear across northern Colorado to Utah. Not so many spectacular mountains, more rolling landscapes of the high desert.
I didn’t take that many pictures, because we had to cover a lot of distance that day, so we couldn’t stop for every beautiful view. But I especially love the way the rock formations look in the evening, when the contours are more pronounced because of the shadow and the light changes by the minute, so I was happy to take some photos at a rest stop we made just past the Utah border.
We stayed the night in Vernal, Utah, planning to drive north to Jackson, Wyoming and, depending on how long that would take us, east into Yellowstone the next day.
