Travels, Day 5

There isn't much about this day that I remember. As with many eight year old boys, by day five I was probably bored and I didn't spend too much time looking out the car window. The back of the Carryall was packed with our stuff and I remember looking in boxes for my stuff, which was infinitely more interesting than the wide open expanses and multi-hued landscapes of Utah.

My Mom continues:
Date: 6-23-72
Place: Cedar City, Utah
"We drove all day - stopped at a KOA camp for the night. We passed some beautiful scenery. Utah has colorful rock bluffs and gullies. We stopped at one rest area with a deep canyon.
Tonight after supper we walked up town - seemed like miles but probably about one mile up and another back. [Dad] bought himself a Timex watch like he has been wanting. It was about 11 o'clock by the time we got back to the trailer."
