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

We just rolled into the busy town of Hurricane, Utah after two days in Zion and much longer in very small towns and wide stretches of farms or wildness. Today we were on the Kolab Road, the little visited west side of Zion which is still blocked by snow. This little niche of Indian Paintbrush in the gently layered and eroding sandstone, high above the sage brush valley below, was just one more indication of spring in the high country.

In the Zion canyon we saw trees leafing out and a few early flowers in bloom along with phantom waterfalls and the Virgin River (along with her lofty patriarchs.)
We hiked until night overcame day and it was really spectacular. We very much liked the shuttle system in the park that is a radically practical way to move people to the trailheads and scenic areas without individual vehicles. Now, if they'd just get rid of the snowmobiles on the Kolab Road!
