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

Almo to Fish Haven

 Before we left City of Rocks we went to the hot springs in Almo which had expansive views of the prairie and relaxing pools. You can see Michael's head poking up... pointing in the direction of our leaving.. eastward and then south.
 We had a vague idea of a reservoir where we might spend the night... it was near Snowville, Utah. What we thought was really quite incredible is that we ran out of fuel 30 feet from the NO Trespassing sign over the irrigated bottoms of what must have once been a reservoir. This was our view back toward where we'd come.
 In the morning (we carry fuel) we saw these antelope as we rode back toward the main highway that goes south to Salt Lake.
 We don't like driving the Voyager in urban areas so my old friend (from high school!) Lisa Shavers, drove up from Salt Lake and we had our rendezvous at a laundromat in Brigham City. The open cab darkness would reveal umpteen wires splaying out from the dash-- while we caught up Michael worked on the head lights and managed to get the low beams working. Yet another victory for the Voyager Director of Maintenance.  Although... we did have more problems after we headed up Hwy 89 through Logan and up into the Logan River pass---some more intriguing fuel or fuel pump problems. We spent the night off a side canyon in a gentle rain and got this 7000 ft. view down to Bear Lake in the morning. Now we are paralleling the lake and have crossed back into Idaho with an eventual destination of Yellowstone... We hiked a little this morning and I'm sorry not to post more of my drippy shots. It's time to move on.
