Sometimes I do not listen to Mr. Flower and it gets me in trouble.
As we were enjoying the views of Canyonlands from Island in the Sky visitors’ center , he pointed out a narrow road snaking down into the canyon. “Look at that car going down through there.” he would say as he pointed out a tiny moving speck.
I had paused and wondered, “What’s up with that road?” It never occurred to me there was a plan involved.
I knew I was in trouble when he mounted the Go-pro camera on the dash of the truck.
Yes, folks. There is a video. I am thankful that most of my comments and squealing are not audible.
The road less traveled is Shafer Trail Road.
It zigzags perilously close to open canyon.
It was a thrilling trip down.
It was an adventure. I did get to see the Bighorn Sheep. I did get to see canyon rocks up-close.
I did get to see the Potash pits up close and take photos of potash crystals. (Future post)
I did learn to listen to Mr. Flower’s casual comments…once in a while.
