Friday morning we head south on Hwy 30 over a couple 6200 foot passes, through acres of wheat and other crops, and unfortunately under smoky haze all the way into Wyoming. Our stop is in tiny Cokeville at the Hideaway Motel right on the highway. Three 50 AMP FHU level dirt sites are in the back of the property next to a nice grass park.
|A volleyball tournament nearby brings a busload of high school girls to join us. They're good neighbors.|
|This timeline railing shows how insignificant our time on earth has been!|
|Can't wrap my head around these numbers.|
|A small and beautiful video room.|
|Many of the fossils are pieces of art.|
|We've seen many fossils around the country, but I don't remember any like this. They have a large display of predatory interaction.|
|Displays include the very small|
|to the very large!|
There is also a five mile drive to the top of the butte, but we opt not to unhook the Jeep to check it out this time. If you're in the area, this is a wonderful stop just 3 miles off the highway.
|Little Osprey Island in Flaming Gorge Lake.|
|The first dam I've driven the motorhome over.|
Vernal is a repeat stop with so much to see. Being able to see it is the challenge this time. Arriving at Fossil Valley RV Park is like being welcomed home. The owner's son (can't believe I forgot his name) is delightful and makes us feel like we're his favorite guests! He takes us to a spot he's sure will accommodate our satellite, with lots of beautiful shade trees. Level gravel with a strip of grass, 50 AMP FHU's and zero view :-) - we love it here!
