Day 8: Ambitious Failure

Having slept pretty well in the back of the Jeep I hit the road early knowing I had some miles to cover.  First stop was Salt Lake City Utah. 

In Salt Lake I met an old friend from Mississippi. Where he treated me to a wonderful lunch at a local Thai Restraunt.  It was great talking to him and catching up.  Also good to know he is doing well.
I love the view in Salt Lake and they remind me of Anchorage seeing the mountains just driving down the road.

My next planned stop was supposed to be the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. Unfortunately I failed to make that.  But along the way I saw many beautiful sights.

Like the original Spanish trail.

And the the Mt. Carmel scenic by way.

I ended the day at a pull off on old historic highway 89.
