In Utah…Heading to Layton..Severe weather warnings!…

We are driving in a snowstorm. I can’t pay attention to load the photos. Here is yesterday’s post.

We had a pleasant evening in Mesquite, Nevada. The hotel, Mojave Edge, was great. The dinner at a Mexican restaurant, Los Lupe’s, was fresh and delicious.

The bed was only a double bed, but we were fine and slept well overall. I awoke at 2:00 am with some breathing problems but used a nebulizer and was able to go back to sleep.

This morning, we showered, packed, and had a wonderful breakfast in the Cinnamon Cafe, located in the hotel. Then, once again, we were back on the road.

There were some stunning photo ops as we left Mesquite, particularly Virgin River Gorge. Which was stunning, as shown in today’s photos. This gorge isn’t the same gorge shown in the series Virgin River, which was filmed in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

There have been several weather warnings on Maps as we traveled this morning. It’s rained in a few spots along the road, but mostly just rain. There’s snow in the mountains. Right now, we are at an altitude of over 6000 feet.

The last time we experienced high altitude was in October in Quito, Ecuador, when the altitude was 9350 feet above sea level. I had breathing problems at that time, but Tom did better.

Right now, at 1:00 pm, it appears we’re driving into a dust storm. We will know what we are facing shortly and report here

We’ve noticed that fuel here is half the prices in Los Angeles as well as prices in restaurants.

At the mo,ment it is raining in buckets but we are still moving along at a good pace and should arrive in Layton in two and a half hours.

We will be back with more, including our dinner with Marylin and Gary.

It just started snowing! Oh, boy!

Be well.
