Time to Get Out of Dodge

Well at least Marysvale, Utah.  Yesterday was a cool, windy and rainy day.  That was fine; we enjoyed a day of football and leisure, and we knew we were leaving this morning.  The winds picked up overnight and were really howling.  I didn’t get much sleep.  Early this morning we had some thunder and lightning. 

We got up this morning and got ready to leave.  As we were packing up, it started to snow.  We couldn’t get out of there fast enough.  Kevin actually had to wear long pants.  This was the view out of our window.

The snow wasn’t sticking to the ground, but we could see it on the mountains and foothills all around us.  Our trip today was about 100 miles.  There was snow on the sides of the road for the first 50 miles.  Luckily, the roads were fine, just a bit wet.

We are now at the Red Ledge Campground in Kanarraville, Utah.  This is a small Passport America campground with about 20 sites.  Our cost for a week is $15.75 per night.  We have a full hook-up 30 amp site with free wi-fi.  They’re having problems with the wi-fi so it’s limited right now.  The campground is small, but very well maintained and clean.  Gail in the office was very nice and helpful.  Here’s our spot.

And here’s the view across from us.  There’s a cute llama, some horses and chickens.

I want to welcome new reader, Janet and thank her for the suggestion of picnik.com for making collage pictures.  I was able to create this picture using Picasa2.  I’ll check out the picnik site, too.

I haven’t figured out how to get rid of the gray border, but I like having the option to create collages.

Don’t wish upon a star – Reach for one!

  1. Hmmm I've never had the gray border problem making a collage with Picasa. Maybe it's because you chose to have all the pictures the same size?? :)

  2. Evelyn,
    I use the free version of Picassa (and not even the latest version). However, I compose my blog posts in Live Writer. That is where I am able to vary the size of the photos after hitting picture, and then advanced. It is in the advanced section where I can pick the size of the photo. If you don't use Live Writer, I would suggest that you download it. It is free also. :)
