I'm now preparing to leave northern Utah and head for parts south. I think I may have my migration patterns backwards, as it's actually starting to warm up here in Logan, and the Cache Valley is beautiful in summer.
I considered staying and using the house as a basecamp to explore points north, but then I decided I'd rather spend the rent money on gas to actually get to points north. Anyway, it keeps you on your toes, having to fight the weather, as you full-timers well know.
|A cold, wintery, and somewhat lopsided day in Logan, Utah|
I'll be heading south in just a few days. I hope to spend some time in the Utah desert, then go on over to my home state of Colorado and camp in the aspens for at least some of the summer, and who knows, I may even make it back up to Canada this year. In any case, spending winter in northern Utah is not in my future plans. It's been a long, cold winter. But I will say the place has grown on me, and I'll have fond memories.
Anyway, the new book is number 5 in the Bud Shumway series and is called the Silver Spur Cafe. Right now, it's available only in Kindle format, but in a few days, the paperback version will be available. For those of you who know the area, it's partially set in the nearly abandoned town of Thompson Springs, Utah, even though the building on the cover some may recognize as being in Green River—the joys of artistic license!
