Our stop at Lake Tahoe was brief. Just long enough to gather our thoughts and refuel, and we took off again shortly after lunch.
Tahoe was not to be our destination and we hit the road again. Because of our delay, we did some driving in the night so I wasn’t sure where we were or where we were going. When we stopped, we were in Wniiandnaiomuccanbac, Nevada.
People of Winnemucca, Nevada, please excuse Bubba.
In the room, I found a brochure. Was this where we were going? Was I to be returned to my lost family? This was amazing!!
We arose the next morning and headed east. After awhile, we crossed an area that was all white and flat. This was the Great Sheet of Paper, a natural formation. The road ran straight as a line on that paper. The Great Sheet was formed by a pulp eruption from a nearby mountain eons ago, when origami ruled the land.
We drove through the salt flats of Utah near the Great Salt Lake. Paper was not involved. With a straight road in front of us and the cruise control set on “too fast”, we didn’t stop for pictures.
We arrived in Park City Utah and settled in for a couple of days. Old Town Park City is a wonderful old timey western town.
There are plenty of restaurants and shops. We managed to find a good place among them to fill our bellies.
I suggested to Rick that he try Fish and Chips for a change. Utah is well known for its fresh Atlantic Cod. While they ate, I made friends with a local resident who came down from the hills. We sat on a bench and watched the people run past.
Park City is a lovely place but it can get cold. The ski lift downtown is a clue. Some people even knitted a giant sweater for a bridge so it wouldn’t catch cold.
I was a bit chilly myself so I snuggled up and dreamt of The Girl. I rolled over and got stuck. The knitting was taking on a life of its own and pulling me in! It seemed to grow tentacles!
I cried out, but Rick and Spider were packing the car for the next day’s departure. Finally, my new friend rescued me and we went back to sitting on the bench to watch the world pass by.
This was all fine but I was itching to go. Are we heading to The Land described in the brochure? Would I find The Girl maybe named Millie there? Were we off to someplace else?
