Oh, we had a lovely afternoon... Our friends and neighbors Tim and Jeannie D. surprised us yesterday morning – they called and asked if we'd like to go on an afternoon's drive with them, up to Bear Lake and the surrounding country. We said “Hell, yes!” and at 1:30 they picked us up and we took off.
Our route took us up Logan Canyon, then over Logan pass to Garden City along the west short of Bear Lake. There we stopped for a late lunch at Cafe Sabor, where I had an excellent arroz con pollo, and Debbie had a sweet pork quesadilla with jalapeno jelly. Tim and Jeannie looked at our food with great interest – they've been to the restaurant often, but have never tried dishes they're unfamiliar with. I think they're going to be trying the ones we had next time :)
Nearing dusk we were headed south on U.S. 91, toward home. Even that drive was scenic because of the gorgeous sunset we were treated to. On our right (west) we had the dramatically lit and colored clouds, along with some contrails. On our left (east) we had the Wasatch Mountains, snow-capped and lit with the orange-red light of sunset. When we finally pulled into our driveway, there was just barely enough light to see.
A just plain lovely day, we had – scenery, wildlife, good food, and even better company...
