We don’t follow many hard and fast rules when it comes to driving days. We don’t avoid rainy weather days, we don’t always stick to the 200 mile or under rule, and we often arrive late in the day (sometimes in the dark if necessary). We do try to be reasonable when it comes to driving, but sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do. Which is why it shouldn’t be too much of surprise that last weekend we drove 600 miles in the rain from Grand Junction, Colo. to the Devil’s Tower National Monument in Wyoming.
We got a jump start by leaving Grand Junction on Friday afternoon instead of Saturday morning. It was a good decision because by the time we ran one last errand in town, filled up with gas, and stopped at the dump station (Fruita has a free dump and potable water at the welcome center off 1-70) it was already getting late. So we drove just a few hours and spent a pleasant night at the very quiet Walmart in Craig, CO and in the morning continued north. It rained on and off all day, but it was dreary and very cold. Most of the drive looked like this.
