Dinosaur National Monument – Green River Campground

Temps at Green River Campground got down to 44 last night, the camper remained at 55 without the furnace. 

Sally – Green River, Utah
 Drove west on Hwy 40, turned north on I84, found our campground in the Sawtooth National Forest north of Ketchum, had a late dinner after 9 hrs of driving and went wearily to bed. 

 

Oh Canada!

On our way to meet friends and explore the Canadian Rockies. We left late Tuesday (1pm) due to spending most of Monday getting Sally’s passport renewal in process with a passport expediter/ courier. The old one expired April 4th 2015, unbeknownst to us. 6 hrs later and $429 poorer (not including the $200 Federal Government renewal fees), we recommenced our preparation activities. The good news is that Sally’s passport will be shipped to our friends Rich and Rennie in Spokane and we will collect it when we arrive!

Small delays aside, we had a lovely drive up the Poudre Canyon, over Cameron Pass (where the aspens are beginning to turn), through North Park, over Rabbit Ears Pass, through Steamboat Springs, past my absolute favorite ranch gate and arriving at Dinosaur National Monument, Green River Campground after dark.  

On our way in the new truck camper.
