One of the outcomes of Nollind’s arm-breaking incident in October is a delay in our travel plans. And not just a delay, but very likely a cancellation of a portion of the journey. You see, the fall weather sticks around a little longer in Utah than it does here in Alberta, but with the end of November our new departure date, it’s very likely to be too wintry in much of Utah for camping in the trailer. There might even be snow. We’re disappointed, of course, but none of us feel it more than Nollind, who was eager to try out his new toy, a Yamaha Wolverine, on the trails and rocks of Moab’s backcountry.
We went to Moab five years ago on our first journey into the US, and we know it’s not the same as being there, but, for Nollind, here’s a little slideshow.
Hopefully, the weather will give us a chance to spend some time in the warmer, lower parts of Utah before continuing into Arizona. We’ll let you know in December. In the meanwhile, we’re happy to hang out here at home (it was 19 degrees Celsius today!) and give Nollind some healing time.
