This morning the wind was still 30 plus mph and gusting higher. If we waited for it to abate we would still be there. We left Rawlins at 9:00AM. We had a beautiful sunny day for driving through western Wyoming. A lot of steep grades. We went past Rock Springs, Green River, Little America, Kemmerer and Evanston.
We got to the Utah Welcome Center at about 12:30PM. I went in to get a Utah highway map and also got Nevada and Arizona.
We stayed on I-80 until the turn to Heber City and Provo. The scenery here is extremely beautiful. We could see a lot of ski slopes. There is a large reservoir which was really pretty with the ice and snow.
We drove on I-15 through central Utah past Provo, Beaver, Cedar City and St George, across a northern tip of Arizona and Beaver Dam to Mesquite, NV.
We are parked behind the Eureka Hotel and Casino. We ate in the casino at the Mason Street Cafe. They serve breakfast all day. Cathy had an omelet and I had biscuits and gravy with sausage patties. It was very good and reasonable.
