I am working my way west to Oregon. I have been trying to stick to higher altitudes because of the hot summer. I have not always been successful, however, but I have seen some beautiful scenery. Strawberry Bay Recreation Area is about 60 miles east of Salt Lake CIty and Provo, UT, in the Uinta-Wasach-Cache Mountains at 7,600 feet in altitude. It was mostly in the 70s and low 80s while I was there. We had some rain almost every day, which I did not expect.
The drive in was beautiful. Note the clouds and approaching rain.
Mostly, there are rolling hills here with a lot of scrub, but hardly any trees.
And here is the lake! Or reservoir, I should say. There are hardly any natural lakes in this area.
There are several campgrounds
in this area--some have no hookups, but I chose the loop with full
hookups, meaning they have water, sewer, and electric.
Next time I come here, I am going to get a better site so I have a nicer view of the lake. I took this photo while out on a walk.
Now here is something funny--I was having satellite problems, so I had to call Dish technical support. One of the first questions they asked was if I had any trees blocking my satellite dish! Hardly, since these trees are at least half a mile away.
I spent a very quiet and relaxing 3 days here, but I am now off to Salt Lake CIty for a couple of days.
No photos of Salt Lake City or Provo, but I did some shopping and visited with another lady who is thinking of buying a motorhome but is not sure of the size she wants.
