This is the continuation of a trip my dad, friend Jacob, and I took at the end of July.

The next morning we headed northwest into the Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest. I don't have any photos, but both Jacob and my dad mentioned this stretch of road was one of their favorites of the trip. We finally felt like we were on vacation and the stress of getting ready for the adventure slowly slipped away. We passed quite a few sheep, and their sheepherder, on curvy mountain roads. One picture I wish I had taken was of a dog that was guarding the sheep. He was huge, and as we passed by he gave us a look of "Keep movin' buddy..nothing to see here!"
We reached the small town of Kamas, UT and stopped for breakfast. The theater, and movie it was playing, made it feel like we had gone back to the 1960's.
Heading east, out of Kamas, we ascended back into the same mountains we had visited earlier that morning. I decided it was finally time for some sight seeing and we made our first stop at a scenic area: The Provo River Falls.
Bald Mountain, and the view from it's pass. If we had the time I would have liked to hike to the top.
Bear Lake. It's the second largest freshwater lake in Utah. Someone has been reading Wikipedia. Can you name the largest?? If you said Great Salt Lake you lose.
Cafe Sabor in Garden City. By chance my mom, sister, and niece were passing through town at the same time!
Caribou National Forest we spotted our first rain clouds. I pulled over to throw on my rain gear which only took 5 minutes. My dad had to dig his out of water proof bags which involved 32 straps to be untied. By the time his gear was on, and bags strapped back down, the rain clouds had moved on. No kidding! From then on he was required to store his rain gear in a more accessible location.
Teton Valley RV Park in Victor, ID. After spotting the cabins Jacob thought it would be nice to a take a night off of setting up a tent and asked how much. There was only one left. What can only be described as a eminent domain situation, somehow my dad snagged it. You can see Jacob and my tents just off to the left. My mom and sister arrived a bit later.
My niece requested more pictures of her. So here you go Kaitlyn.
Pictures on Navajo Bridge.
Only You....can pose with Smokey.
I believe this was at a Oregon or Mormon Trail museum. Wagons Ho!
