Good Morning Gentle Readers,
We'd spent the morning in Silver Reef, Utah, a ghost town northeast of St George. Silver Reef was unique in that it was about the only place in Utah where Catholics and silver were to be found. Although our intent was to mosey over to Grafton, another relic of the old west, reality sidestepped that plan.
Oh Look! Wonder where that road goes? And, just like that, we ended up on Kolob Reservoir Road, a narrow, back road skirting a canyon that separates Zion from open ranch land. We were treated to a spectacular lightning show and pummeled by heavy rain, which was a welcome relief from the heat of the day. Later the downpour blew sideways, washing off a couple of weeks of road dirt. Gotta say, the truck looked better than when Lenny Dykstra's crew pretended to wash it.
