I left Gros Ventre campground at 7 am with early sun lighting up the aspens and cottonwoods. While the light on the trees was beautiful I could see dark sky ahead. Got in
to the rain within 50 miles of Jackson and it was wet from then on until I stopped.
I stopped at the Walmart in Vernal UT for the night, along with 6 other RVs. Up and on the road early the next morning, taking rt. 191 south. Once past Duschene it
Little did I know that was only a hint of what I was to travel in. Thank heavens it was a clear and sunny day. I got up and over the pass (over 9100′) safely with
temps in the very low 30s. It was obvious the road had been plowed earlier that morning.
Once over the pass and down a bit the road dried out and I got into dryer desert country. The rest of the trip down to Moab was uneventful and I got a nice site in a BLM campground.
Have to include this image of some of the fire damage. This was taken just north of Grand Tetons NP but the fires extended down into the park. The fires in Yellowstone were as close to the road in places, too. A friend in Jackson said they don’t expect the fires to be totally out until they get some good snow coverage….
