Chasing the Totality

Day Six: Echo Park

When we located our $28 campsite in Green River Campground, we could hardly believe our eyes. We drove around several times, unable to reconcile the pretty pictures on the website with this brush-filled parking spot surrounded by tightly-packed RVs on one side, and the highway and an abandoned ranger station on the other. There was no view of the river, no showers and no certainy no place to do laundry. So far our mantra for this trip has been, "When in doubt, drive!" And drive we did, out of the park, into the next state and up the eastern side of Dinosaur National Monument.
