Well, I finished up with my 13th year of teaching last week. Summer is here...
Free time? Yes, but I also have "daddy duty" since my daughter's preschool closes down for the summer as well. What to do? My daughter has probably camped 100 days already in her 4 years of life. Always with mom and dad...She has never been out with just daddy. It seemed like a good time. We (I) packed up the cruiser and headed east towards Dinosaur National Monument.

Always have to start out a trip with a little lunch

Made our way to the Rainbow Park/Island in the Park area in no time. The access road is a smooth, graded road. There are some old ranching settlements in the area. Parked just outside the Rupple Ranch homestead...

Not bad artists...I do say so myself! Rock art was everywhere. Some of the nicest I have seen in Utah. These were created by Freemont people around 1000 years ago! Crazy!

It was time to watch the desert come alive as the sun set in the West. Favorite time of day!
