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

9 days on the San Juan River!

 We took out in a cold rain squall last night right at dusk here at the Mexican Hat BLM. That last six miles were challenging with a head wind and that driving rain. I'm grateful to be packed up and back with the Veggie Voyager but I also loved the entire river time experience. Time stretching back to the eroding rocks and messengers of the past.

 Above is a place called River House. We camped and hiked here two days and two days also at a place called "Fossil" due to the ancient Pennyslvania layer, the gray mud like what we saw where the dinosaur's were fossilized but these are "just" plants and shells (wonderful to find 100s in a square foot of rock.)
 There were signs of Mormon and miner efforts to road build and some old trading post remnants but the best was just messages of animal passage through the river mud... a simple reminder of those we share this ancient land with. I'm so grateful for this river time.
