This picture pretty much sums up what our days have been like so far in Cannonville....mostly bad thunderstorms and heavy down pours. Our biggest pup, Wrecks, is so afraid of storms that we don't dare leave him alone in the MH.
According to the hourly report yesterday, there was a 3 hour break in the storms. Joe and I had a bit of cabin fever so we decided to drive the Scenic Hwy 12 towards Escalante.
The views as we drove along were quite pretty!
Hwy 12 is undergoing work to improve shoulders and pull-outs. We did find one spot for photographs.
These little guys were so busy!
|Here comes trouble!|
And we enjoyed the views!
Wide Hollow Reservoir was a busy place. There were lots of people fishing and taking pictures. These geese were the main attraction...there's definitely an explorer in this little family!
Just after you enter Escalanate, there is a scenic backway...Smokey Mountain Road. We gave it a try. It's a well maintained, unpaved road with lots of washes.
It was then time to head home! It was nice to be out and about for awhile...we enjoyed a little bit of sunshine!
It's raining now! Not a surprise. I think I will put on a pot of homemade potato soup. I did look at the long range forecast...next week should be sunny and warm here...no thunderstorms and highs in the 80s. We are so glad we planned a 2 week stay!
I hope you are enjoying your day.
Y'all come back!
