Roadtrip to Utah- October 2008
Chad read in a 1973 issue of "Desert" magazine that "Septober" was always the best season to visit Southern Utah, so we scheduled a roadtrip north in
early October. The rainy weather could not dampen the natural beauty of the region. We spent two nights in Boulder, UT, touring the entire Escalante/
Grand Staircase area for a few days. All of it scented by a handful of big basin sage crushed in my pocket.

That big basin sage is a fond memory from our 1997
camping trip, scenting our dreams. It's now bigger than
ever! And I was glad to see it again.
Where we stayed, Circle Cliffs Motel,
Boulder, Utah. Very comfy!

Highway 12 is insane.
