“Any landscape is a condition of the spirit.” –Henri Frederic Amiel
Adventures with Pepper: Day Six
My last stop before exiting from Utah was a quick visit to Dinosaur National Park.
I should have lingered longer but I was in one of those moods where the day’s destination seemed more important than the journey. I hate it when I get like that.
Part of my day’s rush was that it was Friday and I didn’t have reservations for the weekend, and I was remembering how crowded Lake Walcott State Park always was on weekends. . Fortunately, it was not my first visit to Dinosaur Monument. It was one of those places I visited a couple of time when wanderlust hit me on a weekend. Like past visits, the landscape interested me as much as the bone fossils. I always tried to imagine living dinosaurs waddling across my view.
My mind’s eye let me see them. Can You?
Book Report: Travels with Maggie, 49,606 words. Did almost as much cutting as rewriting. I kept remembering the writing advice to always eliminate the boring.
