We left West Yellowstone, Montana on Sunday, September 22, and drove to Provo, Utah, where we spent the night.
We had supper at the Texas Roadhouse in Provo.
On Monday, the 23rd, we headed southeast on U. S. Highway 6, toward Canyonlands National Park. On the way, we stopped at the rest area pictured below.
The Tie Fork Rest Area
The Tie Fork rest area is located on US-6 in Spanish Fork Canyon a few miles west of Soldier Summit. One of the most popular and busiest non-interstate rest areas in Utah, the Tie Fork Rest Area celebrates the long history of the canyon as a major artery of the railroad industry. The design is reminiscent of a turn-of-the-century train depot. To add a little extra interest to our stop, a train went by on the hillside behind the rest area while we were there.
We hadn't gone far from the rest area when we saw a sight that caused us to turn around a go back for photos...a man on horseback herding sheep.
Our eyes met as we drove by, and we exchanged a wave of greeting.
A little further down the road, and we were ready for another rest stop. (Are you seeing a pattern here?)

It seemed an unusual place for yoga...
...but she appeared to be good at it.
