Deep in the Mountains!

While having breakfast this morning at our B&B in Twin Falls, Idaho, I mentioned that I was a quilter to the owner.  She said she had a quilt in one of the upstairs rooms that she would like to show me.  

Here it is.  She said it was an older quilt or a portion of a quilt and she purchased it framed.  If you click on the photo you can see quite a few feedsack fabrics.  There are some great little blocks here including a few cute little house blocks!  Click on the photo to enlarge.

After another hour or so of driving in the smoke and overcast skies today, we finally crossed into Utah where the skies gradually cleared of smoke.  However, there were numerous thunderstorms along our route today which at times again blotted out the surrounding mountains and landscapes.  Once we got over a summit which name I forget, and started the descent toward Ogden, the skies cleared enough so Mr. Squash  could see the mountains.
Here is the view from a rest stop outside of Ogden.
And looking toward the route ahead of us.  That large gray area turned into a pretty good rainstorm!  The good news is that is washed all the dust and smoke off our car!
Tonight we are in Price, Utah, deep in the heart of the mountains at 5566 feet!  As far as we can tell the area is pretty much established from all the coal mining as well quite a bit of recreation.  We had a little time before dinner so we drove into historic Helper, Utah, a short bit down the road.  The town above was very old and not much there except for a nice antique store where we picked up a lovely, art deco glass bowl.
This really interesting rock formation was just above the town.
And who did we run smack dab into but the world's largest Coal Miner in Helper, Utah!  He wasn't very talkative, so we decided to head back to Price and dinner.

Early tomorrow we head to Golden, Colorado.  Stay tuned for another installment from the road!

I am glad you are feeling better and having a wonderful time on your trip. I was in Utah in May and loved it. We were in St. George and was amazed at the rock formations. Are you going to the quilt museum in Golden? I heard that there is one.

It looks like you're having a good trip. The mountains out there are so indredibly beautiful and majestic.

I liked Utah when we traveled through it last year. The grass sure is green.
