Possibly my last evening in Cedar City.

Sorry for not having much of a change in my status to report!  However, if there is a place to get stuck, this is a good one.  The rest has been very beneficial, this is a pleasant community and Utah is a very nice state.

I was told today that I could have my car by noon tomorrow!  We shall see...

This morning, after stopping by the shop, I drove north on Route 15, exiting in the town of Parowan.  To the west of town was a place called Parowan Gap, with many fine examples of petroglyphs.  After doing a little hiking and climbing (there was a neat cave,) I drove back into town and did a little shopping.  Otherwise, I relaxed and read a bit.

Routes traveled today: 15 - an unnamed dirt road - 130

Watch for my report tomorrow night (if I have access) to see what happens!  Thank you again for reading the page...Igor
