On Monday we took the scenic drive through the Rockies and left Colorado. Along the way, we got lucky again and saw over a dozen Big Horn Sheep rams near I-70. So a quick detour occurred and more awesome pictures were taken. If you never have had the opportunity to drive through the Rockies you should do so….it is beautiful.
We stopped and took more beauty shots about 10 miles from Vale and continued on. After a few hours we dropped down and into Fruita, Colorado. Fruita is the home of the Dinosaur Journey Museum, which is run by Dr. John Foster and his wife Rebecca Hunt-Foster. Both are noted paleontologists and friends to the Burpee Museum. We spent a couple hours visiting with them and getting a tour of the museum.
For those interested in late Jurassic Dinosaurs, this is a place to visit. Some of the old dinomation robots are here as well. We said our good byes and headed the last leg for Hanksville, UT. After two more hours we arrived in Hanksville at 10:00 PM mountain time and settled into our new headquarters….the Henry Mountain Hideout. Next step….breakfast and checking in with the Hanksville BLM (Bureau of Land Management). Stay tuned….
