catchy song, eh?
OK - I heard back from the finder of the Eagle Canyon cone...
he said I could go ahead and post this photo for him:
Thanks, Honkey Cat! Congratulations on finishing the TAT!
Hi Rwelch360 - glad you're all caught up!
Day 11: 7/2/12
Salina, UT to Valley of the Gods, UT (via Mexican Hat) 353 miles
We left the Super 8 and headed onto Gooseberry Road.
Crap, it looked like dirt on the map...
It was, eventually.
here's the blurry map for today:
Things were going great until we got a flat
This is no way to make up the miles...
Our cheap electric pump is on its last legs.
Got enough air into the rear to make it to Loa...
and a shop with a compressor.
Loa or Teasdale?
Stopped for lunch in Torrey.
Got the special.
Burgers and sweet potato fries.
Cows on Hwy 12.
Aww, now I feel bad about the burgers...
Burr Trail (also known as Notom-Bullfrog Road)
Started off paved...
Then turned to dirt
Glen Canyon Recreation Area
We thought it would be fun to take the ferry across Lake Powell.
I don’t know where we got that idea...
Once we paid our $15 and got inside the park,
we had second thoughts.
Apparently, we got there just in time to watch the last ferry depart.
We asked the guy at the launch ramp what there is to do at Lake Powell.
“Um...you could go eat at the restaurant...
you could...hmm...Yeah. There’s not much to do here.”
I don’t want to spend our anniversary here.
This place sucks.
We were leaving anyway, even if we ate the $15, but BigWan decided to ask for a refund.
He got it!
We’ll take the loooooong way around the lake.
Crossed the Dirty Devil River.

Reason: forgot to use that map :(
