Johnna, Shane, Elaine at breakfast

Breakfast at The Hitching Post in Green River WY is good, especially if you can share it with Shane and Johnna Ogden! We met there and enjoyed their buffet breakfast - sausage and gravy, bacon, sausage, scrambled eggs, pancake. Johnna works there as a night shift manager, and her daughter Tara was our waitress. We had not had a chance to see Johnna on this visit yet, so we took advantage of this opportunity. The Hitching Post has been extensively remodeled; what was the restaurant in the front part in now the bar, and what was the bar in the back in now the restaurant. Great place.

Elaine spent part of the morning with Shauna, while Shauna had a medical procedure, and then drove her back home to Green River. Always good. Meanwhile I spent the time alone at home and worked on the Royal Palm newsletter format; I will be taking over as editor when we return to Phoenix and I am thinking about some changes to the newsletter and want to try some out while I have time before then. Diana Carter has been doing an excellent job as editor for the last four years, but wanted to be free of the job so I "volunteered". Since we had snow again this morning, there wasn't much incentive to go anywhere anyway. Fortunately the snow let up around noon.

Kyle and Ashley invited us over for supper tonight, and Kyle prepared a Chicken Alfredo dish - it was delicious! We brought some salad to go with it and some pie for dessert, and we all enjoyed a meal and a good chance to visit. It was also a good chance to spend more time with Brycen, and Elaine took advantage of it as you can see in the photo at left. Ashley works full time at Walmart and since Kyle has not been released to work yet, he handles Daddy duties during the day and does most (all?) of the cooking and other house duties. It works well for them. They have a small apartment in the same place that Elaine once lived in more than 60 years ago; just a different apartment.

A result of the recent snowstorm is a stark white White Mountain this morning, as the photo at left shows. This is the view we get when we are able to park on lot L10. However, by afternoon much of the lower snow has melted since we had a mostly sunny day today and temps got into the mid 40s. Another result from the storms is a muddy mess here in Rock Springs - Green River KOA. Few of the lots have a gravel surface, so the underlying clay soils become quite muddy to walk on. In fact we have taken to carrying the dogs to and from the car to reduce the amount of mud tracked into the car and the house. I parked the car behind us this afternoon to let the sun help dry out the area in front.

Fumble, fumble, fumble, success. Snow. Great customer service. Kyle and Ashley.    (Click for full story)

The view out our front window early this morning

Last evening we noticed that it had started snowing. And this morning I woke up to see about three inches had fallen and it continued to snow fine flakes. That let up by mid-morning, but by noon it had started again, this time with bigger flakes. This made the ground around our RV site quite muddy, as there is very little gravel topping in this row. And, of course, it was also quite wet. I wore tennis shoes instead of sandals, and mostly kept my feet somewhat dry when taking the dogs out. But as the storm continued, the drainage valley in front of OurHous and under our car began running with runoff and snow melt.

Shauna, Casey, and supper

We spent an enjoyable few hours with Shauna and Casey at their home today. Shauna prepared an excellent meal that we all shared for dinner; lasagna and salad, with garlic bread. They have a nice large home in Green River that they have owned for several years now, and in which they have made many changes and modernizations. And the home is getting more and more lovely as time goes on. And it is always enjoyable to spend time with those two. Elaine and Shauna worked on craft projects in her craft room, and Casey and I got a good chance to catch up on many topics.
