Elko to Evanston

Today, Sunday, September 2nd we get up early, maybe due to the trains that run right behind the park?? Have a nice camp breakfast and are on the road again by 8:30. We go through a lot of different terrain, but I80 between Elko and Salt Lake City has to be a close contest to Hwy. 50 for “The Loneliest Highway” ! ¬†We cross the Salt Flats with a brief stop, pass the Great Salt Lake, pass the Morton’s Salt Factory and then through Salt Lake City. We go through Parley’s Canyon and stop and get gas for $3.79/gal., not bad Bridgeport still has it beat at $5.00/gal. We make a side trip to Rick’s sister and brother-in-laws cabin. They totally built it themselves. It is beautiful. It is up at 8,000 feet in the aspen trees with a fantastic view. Their nearest neighbors are moose – who come right under their deck. They feed us dinner and we are on our way. We make it to Philips RV Camp in Evanston at 7:30.
