The Old West outlaw, Butch Cassidy, was born in Beaver, Utah not too far from our current location. I recently found out my Uncle Bill is also from Beaver. Could they be related? It is a very small town. The picture of Butch Cassidy found on the internet has a resemblance to Uncle Bill. Uncle Bill? I am just sayin’….
We have been holed up in our little house near Capitol Reef National Park for a couple of days due to wind, rain, hail, and then some more wind, rain, and hail. Decided to chance the weather and took a drive over scenic Highway 12 climbing up close to 10,000 feet in elevation (have you ever heard of a road with a 14% grade-wow!). You can see clear to Wyoming and Colorado—green mesas, deep canyons, rivers and far-off snow covered mountains. You would think the weather would be worse up so high, but it was not. It was calm and partly sunny. Works for us. Land of Butch Cassidy.
