Where I stayed
Capital Reef National Park Campground
But, that is not the end of this great day. In the campground, I was sitting in my van in a nice little spot without a fire ring, humming and haaahing to myself if I liked it or not. After a while, I decided to go for a tour of the campground to see if I could find a nice spot WITH a fire ring, as I had been lugging about a haul of found and scavenged firewood since Green River...no shit. And, it was getting very chilly at night, so the thought of a fire was very appealing. Driving around, I notice this tanned fellow in a bright red pullover with a white beard...There was something familiar about him so I kept looking at him as I drove closer....I looked from him to the woman beside him...and back, and forth, until..."Oh, my God!!! That's Lee and June from TRU". Unbelievable. Lee was my Physics 12 professor, and June, his wife, was a visual arts student (now graduated) that I chatted with regularly. Needless to say, we drank a few glasses of wine and had a great visit. Turns out they crossed into the US the same day as myself, and paralleled my course down through the states, just East a few hundred miles...Isn't that bizarre? Moreover, if I hadn't been my fussy self, we would have quite likely just by passed each other none the wiser...
