We Didn’t Leave The Snow Behind

Heber, UT   High 55  Low 32

We left Shelley, ID really early Sunday morning – 6:30 a.m. We wanted to get to Heber, UT in time for Jim to watch his NASCAR.

We had beautiful cloud formations all along the Wasatch Front in Utah.


We had hoped for a beautiful travel day and it wasn’t too bad until we started through Weber Canyon. And then it started to snow and snow and snow. At times it was hard to see the car in front of us. We were sure happy to finally arrive in Heber.


One of the interesting things we saw in the canyon is a geological formation known as Devil’s Slide. The slide is composed of two parallel slabs of limestone about 20 feet apart, 40 feet high and about 200 feet long.

This first picture is from the Library of Congress and is a Photochrom print taken in 1898.


This is the picture I took as we drove by.


We are camped at the fairgrounds – full hookups for $15 a night. But with all the snow it was nothing but mud in all the sites. Both of us had to get out galoshes in order to unhitch. We did find some gravel rather than mud for the pups to use.


It looked like a Christmas card with all the snow that was falling but it was wet and cold. Even Skitz and RJ had their winter sweaters on.

(There is no way I could get both of them to look at me at the same time.)



  1. Love the sweaters. Here's hoping they don't need them for a long time.

  2. Wondered where you are. It is not all that warm up here either. I'm making plans to head back to the valley. Tentative in 2 weeks.

  3. Now aren't they adorable!!!! I'm sure that snow was pretty but I bet you're glad to be out of it!!!

  4. As beautiful as the snow is I sure wouldn't want to drive in it. Even though I am from NJ it's been over 40 yrs and even a little ice patch is more than I want to deal with. Did you special order the harness for the pups and if so from where Please

  5. Not a lot of fun travelling in snowy conditions, hope it clears up for you soon.

  6. Ugh! I don't like driving or being in the snow at all! Well, maybe it's not so bad if you're in a ski resort with a cup of chocolate in your hand sitting by a fire. Then, the only snow you see is through a window.

  7. Great photo of Devil’s Slide. It is better than the one on the Internet.

    So glad y'all made it safely. Snow is so dangerous to drive in.

  8. Can you fit all the dog outfits in the bungalow?


Thanks for visiting today. I look forward to reading your comments. Have a beautiful day.
