We got caught in a 40 minute bumper-to-bumper typical Salt Lake Metroplex traffic jam just north of Brigham City. Once it cleared, we jammed east on I-84 to totally miss the whole Friday mess in the 100-mile metro gauntlet.
The drive out yonder on I-84 is blissful compared to I-15 along the Wasatch Front. At Dear Echo, we hung a right on I-80 and then another left on US 40 and arrived in Beautiful Heber City after 5.5 hours elapsed time. We're parked in Chez Wally tonight. Great Door View and a few nice landscape plants beside us.
A Wasatch County Sheriff's Deputy cruised by and eyeballed us but proceeded on so we know we're good to bed down for the night. This is a Wal-Mart we feel comfortable staying at. The price is right!
Our parking spot here is a short walk to a Sportsman's Warehouse. We dispatched Susun to buy a fresh Utah Map Book which at $25 is still a steal.
