Frost on the ground here this morning.

There was 2" of snow here yesterday morning.

Time for lower elevations.

Thanks.

We are doing the very boring I 80 eastbound, but did make a stop to see Fort Bridger...which allows dogs everywhere but in the museum ...and drove thru that area and Green River. Pretty.

If I felt up to any more serious road grades, I would detour thru something prettier, but right now I am just ready for simple.

Will do the back roads again in Nebraska and Iowa....starting to long for the little house, and to see the grands.

We are settled into a nice, reasonably priced campground in Rawlins for the night...which provided dog treats for Lily, and Andes mints for me, with their registration literature.

And, it's called the "Red Desert Rose" Campground.

Yes, lots of miles, and I don't know when or if I will ever be back to the West Coast.

It's been a good trip, all in all.

Maggie, how have the winds been for you on I80? They were pretty constant for me when I drove through. I was glad to get off I80! Good luck on the rest of your trip toward home. Travel is nice, but, when home calls to me, it is time to head for home. So welcoming and comforting.

I am not sure if I should plan so long a trip again, as my right knee is really giving me problems. I'll need to see what my future brings.

Safe travels, my friend. Evelyn.

There have been a few noticeable gusts of wind, but nothing serious.

Going to get off onto 30 after I cross into Nebraska this morning, and take it across to 92 into Iowa...much more interesting, to go thru all the towns.

Yes, Evelyn, there is a lot of knee activity, getting into and out of the our Interstates, but it is good for them in the long run, I feel....keeping my knees strong keeps me from falling, my goal every day.

I think I told you that I have been taking Glucosamine MSM for years, because my chiropractor told me to, and it has made a huge difference in the comfort of my knees...both of which have been torn and repaired.

Add to that, my orthotic levelers that he also recommended , and my activity level can stay up.

Eastward....Ho!


Maggie

Yes, Maggie, I also take a joint support supplement x 2 daily. It appears the constant driving is the primary aggravating factor in my case. Not much to be done when so far from home, unfortunately.

Hopefully, it will eventually calm down. Getting old is no fun, but, much better than the alternative!

BTW, be aware of the regions in Iowa currently experiencing flooding! Safe travels.

Bummer, Evelyn.

I have had a couple of cautions about the flooding in Iowa...thanks, ladies.

There has been a bridge out for a year on the road that leads to Grace Hill from the south, so I always approach from the north...no rivers need be crossed.

There was frost in Rawlins when we got up this morning, supposed to be 80 later today.
