Those Gas Stations from the past:
Saturday report on Sunday:
There is a theme park in this area called “The Lagoon”. Jack Jr. took Elsie Mae there on Thursday; they came back beat and a little queasy from the rides. They shopped earlier and had a very good time.

Today we climbed higher in the Wasatch than ever on previous trips. I wanted to get a better picture of the Great Salt Lake. Ben obliged.
The road was paved for a couple miles then one of the worst dirt roads we have used. Ben was driving. There were no guard rails and the road was one lane with some pull offs for passing. Altogether we met about 12 vehicles of all kinds, only a couple close calls for car damage no scares of leaving the road.
Sherry, Ben, Elsie Mae and Jack Jr. at the top.
The view was fantastic, but the haze over the salt lake made it impossible to really see it on film. The Great Salt Lake has a large island called Antelope Island.
There are many lagoon areas around it. Much can be seen with the eye but not well on a photo.
I had to go back to 2008 when we flew out to give you an idea of the Salt lake and the surrounding lagoons.
above is the Salt Lake, Antelope Island under the plane wing.
We really did enjoy the ride, Ben is a good driver. The drive up and back was in his company truck.
