After spending the night in Grand Junction, Colorado, the last big city for quite some time after, at least until Provo, Utah, some 4 hours drive ...we headed west on I-70 to Utah Highway 191.

Colorado became more desert-like as we left by way of Grand Junction but still beautiful, in a different way. As we made our way into Utah, I noticed how much the vegetation changed ...Utah has the MOST wild lavender I've ever seen ... I can only imagine how beautiful it must be when its all in bloom!!!
|Kinda obvious which pics are taken through car windows and which are first hand.|
Just like travelling through the Rockies in Colorado, in Utah every twist in turn seemed to have a different type of mountain ... left us in awe at every crook and turn of the highway.
|Interesting irragation ... for my friend, Anita.|
We arrived at our son and his family's house just after lunchtime ... after stopping for lunch in Provo, Utah, where our lunch tab was picked up by a random stranger 'paying it forward'.

Yeah! Time with our gbabies ... one of which, our gdaughter, we were meeting for the first time, at almost 6 months old. Won't blog too much about our visit with them as that is personal.
Hiking the mountainside in Ogden, Utah for next post ...
