We’re in a high altitude desert. Sagebrush sprinkled across a red landscape here in the Colorado Plateau. Small towns are occasionally found along this stretch of US-40 but the population is so sparse that we’ve not had cell service for hours. We’ve gotten so accustomed to constant connectivity that this feels weird. Besides that we’re probably missing oodles of geocaches! Looks like we’ll be without signal overnight…

    Been tagging along via google maps and geocaching.com. (Playing where’s Waldo Steve & Karen). Hope you get cell service before the Colorado state line. You’ll need a dime.
    Keep having fun and wish you safe travels.

Magerøya Island

Magerøya Island

We made it to the Top of the World, or at least the northernmost land mass in Europe, Magerøya Island. On our coach tour we learned much about the natural history and the cultures of this starkly beautiful place.
