Moab to Grand Junction – May 22 & 23

  
When we settled into our campsite last night, it was already very dark. In the morning, the view was striking. 

   
  


We packed up and headed to Moab for breakfast. We ate at the Moab Diner, one of our regular stops when we come to Moab. They serve wonderful Banana Buckwheat Pancakes. They were fabulous as usual. 

 
We continued up Highway 191 to I-70. I read aloud from the Roadside Geology of Utah as we drove. It was uneventful.
I read from the Roadside Geology of Colorado once we crossed over the state line. The highway follows the Colorado River. It was really high. Colorado has been getting an incredible amount of rain this Spring. We saw a small flock of wild turkeys along the riverbank.
We made several stops once we reached Grand Junction. We went to Home Depot to obtain some materials to better repair the broken window. While we were inside the store, there was a hail storm. The noise was really tremendous inside a big flat roofed building like Home Depot. It was over by the time we wanted to leave the store.  

We also stopped at a grocery store and liquor store for supplies. We reached my mom’s house around 2:00.
After saying hi to my mom and getting set up, Jon and I went to work on the camper. He removed the window repairs and worked on getting the frame ready for a substitute window. 

  
I removed all of the cushions and things from just under the window. I vacuumed up the glass. I vacuumed the cushions really well. 

  
Mom worked in her garden and kept us company. 

  
Jon cut out Lexan to create window panes. 

   
 I held it in place while Jon taped it up. 

  
By the time he finished, it didn’t look like a replacement at all. 

  
We spent a couple of nights in my mom’s driveway. We went out to eat a couple of times. 

Jon and I went to a nice long walk through the downtown area one evening. It is a nice downtown area.
