Somehow my tablet sprung to life for 15 minutes, long enough to upload this clip to YouTube. This clip covers the drive from Rock Springs to Cody, and will last 9:35.
I trief to go to the Friday night game at Smith’s Ballpark in Salt Lake City, but fate and fireworks intervened. The traffic was incredible, especially near the ballpark. There’s no real parking lot so the surrounding businesses sell parking in their lots. (They do this in Birmingham AL as well) I pulled up to the parking gal and though the sign said $7, she advised me that the parking was $20, due to the fireworks. I told her I didn’t want to be at fireworks night, so I took a leisurely drive back to camp, adding to my cuppa collection.
Fast forwsrd to Saturday night. While driving by the ballpark on Friday, I noticed a trolley station a short block away. I got on line and saw that the 1739 trolley goes right to the ballpark station. There’s a station kitty corner to the campground, and I was waiting for said trolley by 1725. Sadly, there were track issues on our line and that put the line into delay. Our trolley showed up at 1812, and I still made it to my seat by the National Anthem. The game between Sacramento (the Giants AAA team) and Salt Lake (Angels) was competitive. The Rivercats pitcher was dominant through 7, while the Bees starter lasted only 4 innings. The Cats had a 4-1 lead into the 8th, but the Bees strung a couple of hits together and put up 2 runs to make the score 4-3 Cats. And that turned out to be the final score. They drew 11.9k for Friday’s game and 11.2k for Saturday’s game. The Bees seem to have a good thing going, nice ballpark, trolley access, devoted fans. What a deal!
I’m not quite sure why I didn’t bring my camera to Thomas Canyon, where my cousins were camping. But, here we are in downtown Elko after eating dinner together. I’m about a week or so behind on my picture posting.
I need to replace a part on the trailer and it wasn’t until I was three exits down I-215 that I realized that I had forgotten said part back at camp. That now made today’s drive a scenic drive instead. So, here’s 6.5 minutes of scenery.
This part of the Oregon Coast is heavy with sand dunes and riding bikes and quads on the dunes. Standing in front of the lighthouse, you can see and hear the riders below.
You regular readers saw this last year, so there’s no new film to look at. Just a couple of snaps
After a yummy breakfast, we took the Cottage Grove Covered Bridge tour. Clip is about 4 minutes.
Less than 3 minutes of Thursday’s drive.
