I drove all but 13 miles of the variable terrain. We stopped at a visitor center and I learned a lot about the high desert, canyon country that is Utah. Beautiful state parks here that we must return and visit some day. Route 40 took us through Dinosaur Country in Uintah County; great dinosaur museum here in Vernal from all appearances, as well.
We went in for a drink and learned a lot from personable Sheila, the bartender. Their beer contains half the alcohol than any other state in the union. If you want a buzz you have to drink twice as much and thus the state benefits from twice the taxes. Hmmmm! California, take note. Good idea, me thinks. My craft Uinta Pale Ale, locally brewed, was great tasting stuff. It doesn't make any difference to me if alcohol content is reduced as long as it doesn't affect the taste.
It was late by the time we got set up and we decided we would have to skip the museum.
But, yesterday was a busy day in Craig. Besides the museum, we visited the Monica Pullman Car. Its fully outfitted from its luxurious past and a delight to see.
