Thanksgiving 2011 Trip to Price, UT

With Thanksgiving fast approaching, Cindy and I were talking and the subject of yours truly possibly traveling to Price, UT to spend the holiday with her and her family came up.  As it turned out, with only a few days remaining we made the decision and I was going to head north.

We had to work two hours of mandatory overtime on the day before Thanksgiving, so I went in and worked from 0600 – 1630 and left for Price immediately following work.  I arrived just shy of seven hours later safe and sound :)  I opted to take the car for this journey as forecast low temperatures were somewhere in the low 20’s in Price and I really don’t have the gear to deal with that sort of cold.  I don’t like driving my car anymore, but I dislike hypothermia even more :wink:

Thanksgiving went extremely well and though Cindy had to work the rest of the days I was up there, we still had a good time :cool:  I went out exploring just a bit while she was at work and made sure to bring my camera :cool:

 I headed out from Price toward Nine Mile Canyon, but I noticed that it was indeed extremely cold out and that clouds were moving in quite quickly.  Up just a little ways past where the creek pictures were taken the road had turned to dirt.  Putting two and two together I figured there was a halfway decent chance that I might be caught on a muddy road in a snow storm.  The HHR just ain’t set up for that, so I headed back toward Price.  Still, I think the trip was worth it if for no other reason than it got some nice pictures :)

 26 November saw me set out for a nice drive in the countryside south of Price.  I’d been to all the places before, but it’s country that I really like.  Sadly, the dinosaur quarry was closed but that was OK – I had a very nice drive in the middle of nowhere :)  While I think the V-Star could handle the very nicely maintained dirt roads, I’m glad I had the car because it was something like 24° when I left :shock:

I had to head home on 27 November, but I’m growing to like Utah more with every trip :thumb:

Happy belated Thanks giving everyone :mrgreen:
