I saw a golden eagle feasting on some roadkill. I also saw a dead cow by the side of the road soon followed by a pickup truck parked on the side with a totally demolished front end. Ooops.
The scenery changed dramatically just to the east of Cedar City, UT. The road climbed up a canyon and quickly into high country. The aspens were green at the bottom, in full color glory about halfway up, and totally denuded by the time I reached the top.
Just before I reached the turnoff for Zion N.P. I saw this sign. I did a serious doubletake and then went back for a pic. All I could think of was "WTF?!?"
This gives a whole new meaning to "Bitch! Bake me pie!" *pimpslap*
I then made a brief stop at Glen Canyon Dam to take a pic.
So now I'm getting nice and mellow with a few beers so I can leave bright and early to get home to my Kitty, my kitties, and my pup.
