The road to Moab UT
Yes, the rain is mixing with snow!
Yikes - look at the temp!
Now slush is beginning to accumulate on the road...
...and the temperature keeps dropping
Worse yet. NOT FUN!
(Some dash-cam screen shots follow)
And I thought I might have a problem...
About 40 miles south of Moab, the rain/snow dissipated and the temp crept above freezing.
Parked at the motel, snow remained on the bra.
Definitely ready for a beer!
Moab Brewery was a winner!
This is the Black Raven Stout
End of Day 16
