From One Extreme to Another

What a huge weather difference!  We went from highs near 100 and lows in the 60’s to highs barely in the 60’s and lows in the 20’s…OMG!  It will take a little getting used to but we will be fine, just a bit of adjusting to the weather and the altitude.  It is a bit early to come in this direction already but soon it will warm up a bit and not be so extremely cold at night.

The area is spectacular, Utah is beautiful and we are going to enjoy all the places we plan to visit this summer.  For now we will just get adjusted to the altitude and weather and get trained to work in the General Store at Ruby’s and before we know it we will not even notice the difference.

The drive was amazing, we took our time and once we entered Utah, the camera was almost non-stop in taking photos.  We remember the areas we came through, and even remember taking photos but of course since we no longer have those photos from 10 years ago we are recreating and plan to have a blast doing it.

We got settled into our site and we are very happy with it.  It is located in a brand new area where all the employees are setup, way away from all the hustle and bustle of the busy area but close enough for a nice bike ride to work.  Maggie faces the trees where sightings of animals is likely but at the same time we have no trees over us, just wide open skies.

We have the weekend to get settled in before we start training on Monday and then work will begin full time with 2 days off a week to go exploring.  We are so ready for some fun times that not even the weather will be able to stop us from enjoying it all.

These are just a few of the many photos we have already taken with thousands more to come, check them out at our Google + Web Albums.

I waved as I drove the rig past Blu-In last Tuesday, but I guess you were already gone. ;)
