Veggie Voyagers

Couple travelled 30 states and 3 Canadian provinces between 7/07 and 5/08 running their 1987 Ford truck on straight veggie oil. The blog continues with a focus on the natural world and energy politics from a personal perspective

St. Patrick’s Day. Last year I spent the whole day arriving back to S.F. from Guatemala on St. Patrick’s Day. This year we are dropping into the urban core of Salt Lake for the saint’s day to visit an old friend.
Today we went to Arches National Park and wandered around looking at Arches and I tried to take their photos without humans in their windows. Its spring break and it was unnerving how many people were out on the first cold, then warm, day with us.
After that we drove to Green River where Michael picked up veggie oil at an Arby’s that was part of a truck stop. It was grey rock and grey wind out there. The whole trip up, angling toward Salt Lake has been gray after we left the park. The only remarkable thing was, as in Colorado, hundreds of mule deer grazing the flanks of the roadways. I’m including a photo of the sunset from where Michael processed veggie oil and where we will stay tonight. Not bad, great horned owls are calling for their mates. Hoo hoo happy St. Patty’s Day. Sorry I’ve no green to share with you.
