Green River to Glenwood Springs

The scenery was very arid, scrub and sandstone mountains like in any random western film.

Listerning to Nebraska by Springsteen…seems very apt.

Not such a nice day today, the weather is beginning to break up and we travelled through heavy showers.

First stop was Flaming Gorge reservoir and wetlands with its cottonwood trees glowing yellow.

Long road trip today, travelling south through Wyoming, Utah and Colorado.Saw several cormorants which I guess couldn’t get much further from the sea and some mule deer in front of a stand of cottonwoods.

Entering Utah and the scenery changes to red sandstone mountains. A quick visit to Dinosaur Monument NP where there is a preserved quarry site full of dinosaur bones that were deposited by a flooded river.
