Our trip to Utah and back, part one.

The story and photographs.

I’m going to post every other day or so trying to give an idea of what we experienced.

Monday, September 23rd.

This was a barn that we stopped at to photograph on the way through South-Eastern Oregon.

We had Brandy with us and he was loving the journey.

But after we reached Lakeview where we stopped for the night we found that he didn’t enjoy the motel.

Tuesday, September 24th.

So in the morning there was no question about what we had to do. Drive the 4 hours back to Merlin, reunite Brandy with his doggy friends that he missed too much, and then drive the 4 hours back to Lakeview!

(As it turned out this was a very good decision by us. There were too many places where dogs were not allowed!)

Wednesday, September 25th.

First thing in the morning we took a closer look at the water that is the origin of the name Lakeview.

Then followed a long drive, a very long drive, out of Oregon and into Nevada. They were in the main lonely roads.

But stunning scenery alongside the lonely road.

Including a spectacular sight of the mist in the bottom of a particular valley.

Then we came across a herd of cattle being moved along the road.

It was unique to our eyes.

So, that’s the start of our travels.

More in a couple of days time.

    1. Not only that, Colette, but it also gave us a freedom to do tours and certain trails as well. Frankly, we didn’t think it through properly before we set off. So Brandy’s decision was a very wise one!

  1. Beautiful images, Paul. So sorry Brandy didn’t enjoy the trip; it’s a shame us ‘pawrents’ can’t travel to more places with the furry members of the family. Looking forward to seeing more photos. Welcome back.

  2. I once took my brother’s Irish setter camping. Drove hours to get to the Colorado River at the time, and she was thoroughly freaked out. Turned around and drove all the way home. Your story reminds me a bit of that.
