Salina to Lehi

Sunday 26th June

Our plan was to continue heading North today on Highway 89 but it didn’t quite work out that way. At least not at first. The grand old Duke of York (Bob) marched his man 10 miles down the freeway and then marched him back again. Thirty minutes after leaving the hotel we rode straight passed it again, this time going the other way. Sat Nav gets blamed for a lot these days!!

They spend a fortune customising their bikes & cars over here!!

It was still very hot but we soon started heading into the hills.

I suppose we couldn’t ride through Utah the home of the Mormon faith without visiting their spiritual home at Manti. The temple was built in 1877 but looks like it was completed yesterday. The rest of the city was equally immaculate.

The reason we came North, Trees, mountains still with snow on and a lot, lot cooler.

Using a gravel road rather than the freeway.

Bob’s credit card was declined at the motel again....

Lehi is at the northern end of Utah Lake a short distance from Salt Lake City.
